  • 3-4 Roma (plum) tomatoes, seeded and chopped (about 1 1/3 cup)
  • 1 cup chopped leafy green lettuce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • Approximately 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 package (16-oz.) twin French bread loaves, cut in 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/3 cup favorite crumble cheese, blue cheese or feta (optional)

Cooking Directions
In medium bowl, stir together all topping ingredients; set aside. Brush olive oil on both sides of bread slices; place on baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F., turning once, for 7 minutes per side or until crisp and golden brown; cool. Spoon about 1 tablespoon topping on each toast round.*

* Or, serve topping in a small bowl, surrounded by the toast rounds.
