or so as an appetizer
- 1 loaf crusty baguette or ciambatta bread, cut into thickish slices
- 5 cloves garlic, peeled and cut in half
- Put the bread slices in a slow oven and bake until dry.
- Remove and rub with the garlic halves; the rough edges of the toasted bread act as a grater for the garlic.
- Serve each garlic-rubbed slice of bread topped with several spoonfuls of the tomato-olive-herb mixture or marinated pepper mixture.
