Jamie Oliver Style.. with mild changes.
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup black olives
4 to 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

A drizzle of herb vinegar
1 dried chili
A handful fresh basil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 ciabatta or other rustic bread, cut into thick slices

- Squash your tomatoes into a bowl. Then, gently smash the olives on a board with a rolling-pin. Remove the stones, throw the olives in with the tomatoes, and toss together.
- Add a few drops of oil, the oregano, a drizzle of vinegar, crumbled chili, and the basil. Season, to taste.
- Toast the slices of bread and rub with the garlic clove, pile on the tomatoes and olives, rip the mozzarella and lay over the top. Drizzle with a little bit more oil and finish with shaves of Parmesan.
