This is like soul food for the summertime.  It’s not too rich and heavy for a hot night, but it’s got enough buttery, toasted goodness to satisfy anyone.  These heirloom cherry tomatoes are so juicy- take one bite and they explode with sweetness.    I suggest using a batard loaf.  Batard literally means bastard because it is the inferior form of a baguette.  However, it’s large surface and spongy insides are perfect for holding in the delicious flavors of Tomato Toast.

6 slices batard sourdough
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 avocado
handful of chopped basil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
5 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
4 slices butter

Heat the butter in a pan until golden brown, add the bread and fry until browned on both sides.  In another pan put the garlic, basil, and a slice of butter and let it brown.  When that is done, mix tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, avocado, and the basil/garlic mixture.  Spoon on top of the bread and enjoy with a glass of Pinot Gris!
