It's super easy to make and is typically served as an appetizer. I almost forgot how good it was until I was reminded a few weeks ago while having tapas at the a href="http://www.gb-35.com/"Gastro Bar/a.br /br /You can use any crusty bread, I used a rustic loaf but a french baguette or Italian bread cut open would work great too. I toasted slightly in the oven, but you can also grill it if you're dining al fresco.br /br /Once toasted you rub a clove of garlic over the bread and a half of tomato. Sprinkle with a little salt, pepper and olive oil and eat. Simple! This is the time to make it while tomatoes are at their peak. If you don't like the idea of raw garlic, leave it out or use roasted garlic instead! Personally, I can be very happy having this for lunch with a green salad!br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DxvlzWhxYp8/UDLzBDtVJvI/AAAAAAAAHNk/vvqPt1lArdA/s1600/Spanish+Tomato+Bread.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DxvlzWhxYp8/UDLzBDtVJvI/AAAAAAAAHNk/vvqPt1lArdA/s1600/Spanish+Tomato+Bread.jpg" //a/divbr /br /a href="http://www.skinnytaste.com/2012/08/pan-con-tomate-spanish-tomato-bread.html#more"b Click Here To See The Full Recipe.../b/a
