While visiting with a good friend she made this recipe and both me and my husband are hooked.  It is traditionally an Italian recipe, but it goes well with many dishes, so I make it often.  I tweaked the recipe to make it my own and it’s amazing.


  • 4 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Divided
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Pepper to taste
  • ½ baguette, thinly sliced


  1. Add to bowl, tomatoes, garlic, green onion, basil, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and pepper.  Mix to combine and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400℉.   Brush 1 side of each baguette slice with olive oil and place on baking sheet, olive oil side up. Once oven is heated place in oven and toast for about 3 minutes, checking bottom so it does not burn.  
  3. Remove toasted bread from oven and add a spoonful of the tomato mixture onto each slice.  Serve immediately.
