There is no better combination than tomato, cheese, basil and bread. It also is a must have during the summer. This dish is so simple and full of flavor. There is not a single person who is not impressed with this. This time I chose to grill the bread because it is gives it that lightly toasted taste but doesn't make the bread too hard. My sister and I were just talking about how much we hate when the bread rips up the inside of your mouth and for days you are regretting that broiled bread.

Place bread on the grill for about 2 minutes on each side. Once they have grill marks they are done. Usually doesn't take long when grill is on high.
