Ingredients
  

  • 3 Vine Ripe Tomatoes or any variety diced
  • ½ Small Red or White Onion
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Basil chopped
  • 1 Clove Garlic pressed or minced
  • ½ tsp Dried Oregano
  • ¼ tsp Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
  • ¼ tsp Fine Sea Salt more or less to taste
  • 1 French Baguette sliced
  • 3 tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil for bread
  • Crumbled Feta or Goat Cheese as desired
  • Balsamic Vinegar Glaze as desired

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C), and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.
  • Dice tomatoes and red onion, set aside in a medium serving bowl - remove tomato seeds and juice. Add fresh basil, minced garlic, oregano, salt and pepper to the serving bowl. Stir to combine, set mixture aside to marinate for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Slice your baguette on the diagonal into bite-sized pieces. Lightly brush both sides with olive oil.
  • Place slices in a single layer on prepared baking sheet - ensure not to overcrowd the sheet. Bake on middle rack, until crisp and golden on top. Transfer to a serving platter, and set aside.
  • When ready to serve, drain excess liquid from tomatoes, spoon mixture on top of each toast, drizzle on balsamic vinegar glaze, and top with crumbled feta or goat cheese. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

Remove seeds and juice from tomatoes. This may be a tedious task but take the time to remove the seeds and juice from the tomatoes as the seeds add extra water to the mixture, which can make the toasts super soggy.
