Summer snack

This is the best summer snack ever, one I discovered a million years ago on a Tuscan farm, and am revisiting in a Tuscan village.  It’s so easy. Take the best piece of bread or focaccia you can find. Peel a fat, new clove of garlic and rub it all over the bread, on all sides, and particularly on the crust. Then, slice your ripest tomato in half and rub the cut side all over the bread, squeezing it as you rub.  If your bread isnt salty then sprinkle it with salt.  If  you like basil, tear a few leaves and sprinkle them on the bread.

That’s it.   A taste of summery heaven.

      It is a great trick, easy and available. You do need yummy bread, but that’s usually pretty easy to find. Summer is such a great season for quick tricks.

    Similar to pan tomate in Barcelona.
