Classic Tomato Bruschetta

Always a popular appetizer.  The topping can be made up to a day in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve.  For a show- stopping presentation, seek out a mixture of red, orange and yellow grape tomatoes.

INGREDIENTS
1-2 slices (1/2-inch thick) French bread (baguette)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 cup grape tomatoes, chopped 1/4-inch pieces
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 to 2 pinches freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
2 large fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced (chiffonade)
grated or shredded Parmesan, for sprinkling (optional)
Instructions

1 .   Preheat grill in the closed position.


2 .   Using 1 tablespoon of the oil, brush all the bread on both sides. Once the unit has preheated, put all the bread onto the grill and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side, until lightly browned.


3 .   While bread is grilling, prepare topping.  In a small bowl, stir together the tomatoes, salt, pepper, garlic and basil with the remaining oil.


4 .   Once bread is grilled, transfer to a platter or large plate.  Evenly divide the topping on the grilled bread.  Sprinkle with Parmesan if desired; serve immediately.
