Spanish Tomato Toast (pan con tomate)

DianeDiane Lunman

The bread is rubbed with garlic, tomato halves are smeared all over the toast (tomato pulp will rub off onto bread), drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil, and sprinkled with coarse salt, and freshly ground black pepper. The light sprinkling of salt over the tomato and olive oil is essential to bring the flavors together.
