  1. Stir tomatoes, basil, 3 tablespoons olive oil, red onion, garlic, red wine vinegar, and pepper together in a bowl; let tomato mixture stand at room temperature for 15 minutes, then place in the refrigerator to marinate for 45 minutes.
  2. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  3. Brush one side of each slice of bread with remaining olive oil. Place bread slices, oiled-side-up, onto a baking sheet.
  4. Broil until golden brown, about 2 minutes; remove from oven. Spoon tomato mixture evenly over the top of toasted bread slices; drizzle balsamic vinegar evenly over tomato mixture. Serve immediately.

I have made this and yes I would add a little salt. I found this to be the best recipe. I did sprinkle a little parm cheese after I put it on the bread.

Amazing, easy recipe!

Did not change a thing. This was absolutely delicious as written! Go make this right now you will love. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

Instead of grilling the bread under the broiler, I grilled it lightly on the barbecue. I also drizzled balsamic reduction over the top right before serving. Delicious!!!

Very tasty. I was out of balsamic vinegar, so I had to skip that. I added a dash of garlic powder for a little extra garlic flavor.
