Grilled Sourdough with Heirloom Tomatoes and Sumac
From Chris Halpin
Use a big, fruity olive oil, perfect for drizzling over grilled bread. Sumac is a Middle Eastern spice with a pleasant astringent, fruity taste. Find it at Middle Eastern stores and The Silk Road Spice Merchant.
- 8 1/2-inch-thick slices of sourdough bread
- 2 garlic cloves
- 3-4 ripe heirloom tomatoes, thinly sliced
- extra-virgin olive oil
- Maldon salt
- 1 T. sumac
Preheat a grill or broiler to medium-high heat. Grill the bread on both sides until it’s crispy and slightly charred. Rub the bread all over with garlic and put it on a serving platter. Top each toast with sliced tomatoes, a generous drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkling each of Maldon salt and sumac.
Serves 4 to 6.
