1lb cherry tomatoes, quartered (
2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp black pepper
1 baguette French bread

balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper and add to bowl. Cover bowl and set in the fridge while you prepare the bread. (You can make the tomato & basil mixture the night before to make it easier the day of)
3. Diagonally slice the French bread (or any similar Italian bread) to 1/4-1/2 inch size and brush one side of each piece of bread with the extra 1/4 cup of olive oil you set aside.

5. Remove bread, let cool slightly, top with tomato & basil mixture, and enjoy!
