Preparation Method:

Brush a griddle pan with olive oil and heat. Add the tomato slices and cook them for about 4 minutes, turning once, until softened and slightly cooked. Alternatively, heat the grill to high and line the rack with foil. Grill the tomato slices for 4-6 minutes, turning once, until softened.

Meanwhile, lightly toast the soda bread. Place the tomatoes on top of the toast and drizzle each portion with olive oil and vinegar. Season to taste and serve immediately with a thin shaving of Parmesan cheese.

Cook’s Tip:
