· 5 large or 8 cups medium ripe red heirloom or beefsteak tomatoes (cut into 1-inch cubes)· 1/2 cup red onion (chopped)· 8 - 10 fresh basil leaves (chopped)· 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil· 1 clove garlic (minced)· Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste· good crusty bread (for serving (optional))
