Italian in the air!

1 loaf of italian or french bread, sliced*
4 varieties of tomatoes, diced into 1/4 inch pieces
salt and pepper
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp of vinegar (optional)
mozzerella cheese (optional)
olive oil

Cold option.(have tomatoes stored in frig) Mix tomatoes with vinegar. Add seasonings. Keep refrigerated.

Warm option. Mix tomatoes and seasoning. Set aside.

Brush the slices of bread with the oil (enough to cover the bread but not soak it). Fry the garlic with a little oil in medium-high heat. Fry the bread on top of the garlic, repeat on other side when golden brown. Remove from heat and place the bread on a baking sheet in a warm oven, while you finish frying the rest of the bread.

Cold option. Scoop cold tomato mixture onto warm bread and serve immediately.

Warm option. Top room temperature tomato mixture on the bread in the oven. Top with cheese. Broil until the cheese melts. Serve immediately.

*Only use as many as you plan to be eaten. These do not reheat well.
