  • 2 cups ripe red tomato chopped
  • 1 cup sweet onion finely chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Toast

  • 12 slices Cuban bread may substitute French bread

  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped

Instructions
 

Topping

  • Mix the tomatoes, onion, olive oil, vinegar, cumin, and garlic together in a large bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Bread

  • Slice Cuban or French bread in 1-inch thick slices. Place on a cutting board and use a heavy frying pan or bacon press to compress them slightly.

  • Fry the bread on both sides in a large sauté pan over medium heat until lightly toasted on each side.

Assembly

  • Spoon a generous helping of the cold tomato mixture on each slice of toast.
  • Sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Serve immediately.
