Fresh herbs of your choice, chopped – I used chives & basil
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
Sea salt and fresh black pepper
Shaved pecorino or parmesan cheese (optional)
Red pepper flakes (optional)
Fresh mozzarella cheese slices (optional)
Drizzle the bread slices with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Broil or grill until the edges are golden brown. While the bread is still warm, rub the top of each slice with the cut side of half the garlic clove.
In a small bowl, toss the cherry tomatoes, shallot, and herbs with a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.
Top the toasted bread slices with the tomato-herb mix and any optional toppings. Sprinkle with any leftover herbs.
