Step 1

The main ingredient being tomatoes, choose seasonal tomatoes, very well cooked and flavored.

In winter, I think cherry tomatoes would be better suited, because they are sweeter.

Step 2

Tomatoes are cut into slices - usually in 4 - and cleaned well of seeds, the core is soft and too juicy. The pulp must remain firmer and firmer.

Sprinkle a little salt on each slice.

During this time we prepare the bread - cut it into thin slices and place it in an oven tray lined with baking paper. Sprinkle with a little olive oil and bake for 5-7 minutes, until the edges begin to brown.

When it's ready, take it out of the oven and let it cool a bit.

Step 8

Very important! - Put the tomato mixture on the slices of bread just before serving, if you do it in time and leave them - the bread softens too much and they have no charm. Keep the tomato mixture separate, separate the slices of toast and whip them even before serving.

Good appetite!
