Ham (Iberico ham is suggested)



Slice the bread and toast it.

Once toasted, cut the tomatoes and garlic in half and rub each slice on both sides with the garlic and tomato.

Finish with a sprinkling of oil.


If you want, you can make what it is called an ajilimojili, by chopping the tomatoes very finely and mix them in a bowl with oil and salt. You can also add chopped garlic to this sauce. Then spread this sauce onto the toast. This is a confortable way but is not the same preparation in Catalunya.
