For the Tomatoes:
5 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
4 large tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup thinly sliced basil
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. kosher salt
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

For the Bread:
1 large baguette, sliced 1/4" thick on the bias
Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
2 cloves garlic, halved

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

In a medium skillet over medium-low heat, heat the 4 Tbsp. of oil. Add the 2 sliced garlic cloves and cook until golden (2-4 minutes). Remove from heat and let cool.

In a large bowl, toss together tomatoes, basil, vinegar, salt, and red pepper flakes. Add the cooled garlic and oil and toss to combine. Let marinate for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the toasted bread: Brush bread on both sides lightly with oil and place on large baking sheet. Toast bread until gold, 10-15 minutes, turning halfway through. Let bread cool for 5 minutes, then rub tops of the bread with garlic cloves.

Spoon tomatoes on top of bread just before serving.
