  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. Place the ciabatta slices on a large baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Cut the garlic cloves in half and rub the cut side on bread slices (discard garlic cloves after this).

  4. Grill the ciabatta until golden brown. Remove from the oven and top with the tomato mixture. Serve immediately.
