Fit the Cuisinart® Griddler Combo® with one grill plate and one griddle plate. Preheat the griddle side to medium and the grill side to high. Using 1 tablespoon of olive oil, brush the tomatoes with the oil; season with salt and pepper. Brush each slice of bread with the remaining oil. Once the grill is preheated, place the tomatoes, cut side down, on the griddle plate. Cook for about 30 to 45 seconds per side. While the tomatoes are cooking, place the oiled bread on the grill side. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, until bread is warmed with nice grill marks. Once the tomatoes are cooked, cut into large pieces and transfer to a small bowl. Toss with the remaining ingredients. To serve, divide the tomato mixture among the 8 pieces of the grilled bread.
