This culinary staple is called "Pa amb Tomàquet" in Spain's Catalunya region, where it translates as "bread with tomato." Its simple elegance demands the best country bread, finest extra virgin olive oil and ripest tomato. For added flavor, try it with anchovies or thin slices of Spanish cheese, like Campo de Montalban.
- 1 slice country or paisano bread
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/2 ripe tomato
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Sea salt
Grill or toast bread slice. While still warm, rub garlic clove into bread, then rub with cut tomato until moistened. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
