Before you start

Box grater | Sieve | Hot grill

Prepare the tomatoes

  • Set a sieve over a bowl to catch the tomato liquid.
  • Using the large side of the grater, grate the tomatoes into the sieve, add a big pinch of salt and leave for 10-15 minutes so that the tomatoes lose most of their water.

Toast the bread

  • Under a hot grill, toast the bread until nicely browned.
  • Peel the garlic clove and rub onto the bread.

Assemble and serve

  • Stir the vinegar through the tomatoes.
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  • Spread the tomato flesh over the toasted bread.
  • Drizzle with your favourite extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with chives, and serve.
