5-6 heirloom tomatoes, different colors
1 bunch basil, finely chopped
2 bell peppers, finely chopped
½ cup olives, cut in half
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 clove garlic, minced
½ sweet white/purple onion, diced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 oz goat cheese
½ clove garlic (for rubbing on toast)
Cut the tomatoes into small chunks, using the fleshy parts/skin and discarding the seedy insides. Add to a large bowl with the kosher salt. Chop the rest of your ingredients and add it all to the to the bowl and mix together. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Cut the baguette into thin ½ inch slices. Toast until lightly browned and rub with a garlic clove to give the bread a little flavor. Then spread a thin layer of goat cheese on each slice. Top with tomato mixture and serve as an appetizer or a side!
