Tomato Basil Dip

3 cups diced fresh tomatoes
1 tablespoon or more minced garlic, mashed to a paste (use a garlic press or flat of a knife)
5 tablespoons chopped basil (chop it medium-fine)
1 tablespoon olive oil
dash of balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
thinly sliced, lightly toasted baguette slices

Lightly toss tomatoes, garlic and basil.  Drizzle with olive oil, splash with balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.  Give a quick stir and serve with baguette slices.
