  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine tomato, basil, and red onion in a small mixing bowl; stir well. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
  3. Arrange bread on a baking sheet. Place in oven, and bake until well toasted, approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Remove bread from oven, and transfer to a large serving platter. Let bread cool 3 to 5 minutes. Rub garlic into the top of each slice of toast; the toast should glisten with the garlic. Spoon the tomato mixture generously onto each slice, and serve.

I substituted a sweet onion for a red onion, and instead of fresh basil i used dried basil. I thought it was better using those, but i shared it with a class of grade 8's and about 93% loved it!

Very easy and very tasty!

Also good with a little bit of rosemary for flavor.
