Author Notes: Is this the taste of summer? I think it might be. It is also one of the simplest and most rewarding. All you need is a loaf of sourdough (or similar), a pile of tip top, super ripe, full of sun tomatoes, some really good olive oil, garlic and a few herbs if you have them.
Make these toasts and then tuck in with your toes in the grass or better still the sand and remind yourself what summer tastes like.
It is difficult to be exact with ingredients as I don't know the size of your sourdough but this is a guide. —Anna May
loaf of sourdough bread, or other rustic bread
tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
clove garlic peeled and halved
splash red wine vinegar
pinch Sea salt
sprig Fresh oregano or basil if you have it
- Slice and toast the sourdough. Finely chop the tomatoes and put in a bowl with the oil, vinegar, salt and some black pepper if you like, give it a stir. Rub the toasts with the cut side of the garlic and top with the tomato mixture. Pour over any remaining oil and sprinkle with the herbs.
