Catalan tomato bread with chargrilled salad onions


1 loaf grand rustic bread
bunch salad onions, halved
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
2 large garlic cloves, unpeeled and halved
200g pome dei moro tomatoes, finely chopped 


1. Set a griddle pan over a high heat. Slice open the bread horizontally then cut each ½ in two, so you end up with four rectangular pieces. Brush the bread and salad onions with the olive oil. Cook the bread cut-side down for 2-3 minutes, until lightly charred; set aside. Next, cook the salad onions for 3-4 minutes, until tender.

2. Rub each slice of toast with the cut side of the garlic, then spoon over the chopped tomatoes and season. Top with the griddled salad onions, drizzle with a little more oil and serve warm. SF
