Spanish Tomato Bread

  • Author: Julie
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 ciabatta bread
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Extra-virgin Olive oil + more for brushing and drizzling
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • Optional:  1 tsp Sherry vinegar
  • Optional Garnish: Fresh basil or oregano


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.  Cut your ciabatta bread in half lengthwise and then into hand-held-size squares.  Brush the face of the bread with olive oil and grill on a preheated grill until the face is golden and the edges are nicely charred (but not burned), about 4-6 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, remove the tops of the tomatoes and then cut them in half.  Grate the tomatoes on the large grates of a cheese grater and discard the peel.  Add olive oil (and sherry vinegar, if using), salt and pepper.  Give this a stir to combine and taste for seasoning.
  3. Top your grilled ciabatta bread pieces with the tomato mixture.  Drizzle with some additional olive oil and garnish with fresh herbs (if using).
