Delicious! However, the second time I made them, I prepared the mixture the night before so the flavors could develop, and it was twice as good. This will be one of my favorites in the future. Thank you, Doreen.

This recipes is wonderful, served it as an appetizer for New Years Eve. I thought it was a little bland. I added 2-3 tablespoons of balsalmic vinegar to the tomato basil mixture. Then after the bread was toasted and the tomato mixture was on the bread, I sprinkled shredded provolone cheese on top and put it back in the oven until the cheese was slightly melted. This disapeared as soon as we got it out of the oven.

This made a beautiful presentation! Basil and tomatoes fresh from my father's garden, along with the toasted bread. There was a little left over, and the next day it smelled and tasted even more wonderful than it did the night before! The basil was a little wilted the next day, though, so next time I'll mix everything together but the basil the night before, and then cut and add the basil just before serving.
