    I rubbed a raw garlic on the bread like we had in Barcelona. Delicious. :)

    So simple it doesn't even need a recipe- toast a coarse country bread, rub tomato on top of the toast until the juice permeates it, and garnish with a bit of olive oil. Endless variations are possible with this dish, and I'll be thinking about this during the winter when there aren't fresh tomatoes anymore.

    Sometimes the simplest recipes can be the most satisfying. I served this as part of a tapas meal instead of the more traditional Spanish breakfast. I also rubbed the bread with raw garlic (before the tomato), which makes it spicy but oh so good!
