One of the greatest skills in the kitchen is to use every last bit of food without it being thrown away. It is a good day when there is day old bread and too many tomatoes at my house. The vinegar will give the tomatoes a few extra days working as a preservative

4 cups chopped tomato about 4 large
1/8 cup olive oil extra virgin
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp dried basil or 1 tbls fresh chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped or 4 tsp chopped garlic
2 chopped green onions optional
grated Romano or Parmesan cheese

french bread sliced
brush slices in olive oil
toast on grill pan or I use a panini press or an indoor grill. Garnish tomato mixture with cheese and serve on toasted bread

tomato mixture is also very good served on greens as a salad!
