This Grilled Baguette with Fresh Tomato Rub is an easy, classically Italian side with just a bit of a twist. The toasted baguette is usually just rubbed with a fresh ripe tomato, but I think it’s better if the toast is first rubbed with garlic, then the ripe tomato and then finally a sprinkle of sea salt. Yummm!
