What you will need:
5 tomatoes (You can use any tomatoes you have on hand I just so happen to have some roma, yellow pear and chocolate cherry from my garden)
1/2 c. of loosely packed basil
1/2 tsp. kosher salt (more or less depending on your preference)
1 clove of garlic
Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil + more to brush on the bread before putting it under the broiler
1 baguette sliced on the diagonal
Rough chop the tomatoes and add them to your bowl
Sprinkle on the kosher salt
Use a garlic press for your garlic or chop very fine
Drizzle on the olive oil
Top with the basil after slicing it up finely
Gently mix all of the ingredients
Cover with plastic wrap and let stand a room temperature letting all the flavors meld for at least an hour.
Voila it's ready to serve and I promise you won't be disappointed.
