  Tomato 4 , chopped
  Fresh basil leaves 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), torn apart into small pieces
  Olive oil 2 Teaspoon
  Red wine vinegar 1 Teaspoon
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), diced
  Caper 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1 Pinch
  Baguette 1 , cut into 1 inch pieces
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm)
  Olive oil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon

1. Heat your grill to medium heat or turn on your broiler.
2. In a bowl combine the tomatoes, basil, olive oil, red wine vinegar, diced garlic, and capers. Mix well.
3. Add salt and pepper to taste. Allow to sit for at least 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
4. Place the baguette slices on your grill or broiler and toast each side for about 1 minute. Just enough time to get the desired grill marks. Test a piece before laying out all the slices.
5. Remove from the grill and rub each slice of baguette on both sides with the clove of garlic.
6. Lay out the baguette slices and top each piece with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Flip over the slices and repeat. Allow the bread to sit for at least 10 minutes so the oil can soak into the bread.
7. Top each baguette slice with a tablespoon or more of the tomato basil salad and serve.
