4 tomatoes (I buy whatever looks best), if using beefsteak I might seed them to reduce the amount of liquid.
1 clove of garlic, minced (I use a microplane)
3 glugs of olive oil (go around the bowl 3 times)
Fresh basil, chiffonade
Fresh bread, sliced into thick wedges, either lightly toasted or grilled
Mix it all in a bowl. Taste and season as needed. I like to serve it a room temperature.
