Tomato Ombre on Grilled Rustic Bread with Delightful Palate’s Balsamic Garlic Honey

adapted from Martha Stewart ,Living 

1 large, long rustic Italian loaf, such as ciabatta

2 cloves garlic, split in half crosswise

3 pounds ripe heirloom tomatoes, ranging in color from red or orange to yellow and green

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided

¼ cup Delightful Palate’s Balsamic Garlic Honey

1 1/2 teaspoons flaky sea salt,

Freshly ground pepper

 

 Preheat grill to high heat. Trim top crust of loaf slightly to make a flat surface, then slice loaf horizontally to create 2 long halves. Grill bread until moderately charred, 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Rub bread on both sides of each half with garlic and place, cut sides up, on a platter.

 Cut tomatoes into thin slices. Collect accumulated juices and spoon onto bread. Drizzle bread with a generous 1/4 cup oil. Sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt; season with pepper.

 Shingle tomato slices on bread, arranging by color and covering each entire surface. Drizzle tomatoes  with Delightful Palate’s Balsamic Garlic Honey and season with remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt. Cut tomato-topped bread into wedges and serve.
