This basic recipe can be easily altered to match the ingredients you have on-hand. Use any kind of tomato, fresh or dried herbs, and whatever kind of bread you like. Today I'm using Campari tomatoes, dried basil, fresh oregano and cocktail bread slices to make a lunch side dish for two.
Here are the basic ingredients you'll need:
- garlic clove
- olive oil
- balsalmic vinegar
- salt and pepper
Assemble the tomato mixture by combining the following ingredients:
- 4 chopped Campari tomatoes
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- a pinch of fresh, chopped oregano
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1 T olive oil
- 1 T balsalmic vinegar
- salt and pepper to taste
- parsley garnish, optional
Set the tomato mixture to the side to marinate.
Toast 6 cocktail bread slices and lightly brush with olive oil, if desired. Heap a spoonful of the tomato mixture onto the toasted bread using a slotted spoon. Top with a sprig of parsley, and serve.
Voila, here is the finished product served with broiled teriyaki chicken wings. Yum.
