  • 1 ciabatta loaf, cut into 8 slices
  • 500g small plum tomatoes
  • 10 fresh basil leaves
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, halved


    1. Preheat a griddle pan until hot and toast the ciabatta for 3 minutes on each side until brown and crisp. Leave to one side to cool. If you don't have a griddle pan then toasting is fine.
    2. Quarter the tomatoes and place in a bowl. Add the basil and olive oil and season well. Mix together and cover. Set aside at room temperature for 5 minutes.
    3. Rub the garlic over the bread on both sides after cutting the cloves in halves.
    4. Place 2 tablespoons of the tomato mixture on top of each slice of bread on a large plate.
    5. Drizzle remaining juices from the bowl and serve.
