Heat olive oil in a small skillet or saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and saute until just starting to turn golden, about 1 min. Do NOT brown.
Pour into large mixing bowl. Let cool while you chop the tomatoes and basil.
Pour tomatoes into bowl with cooled oil mixture. Add parmesan, basil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss mixture well. Serve right away over toasted bread. Garnish with more parmesan if desired.
To TOAST BREAD: position oven rack a few inches below broil and preheat broiler. Align bread slices on an 18 ' X 13" baking sheet. Broil first side until golden brown, about 1 min - watch very carefully. Flip to opposite side and broil opposite side until golden brown.
You can also rub garlic on the bread after toasting - cut clove in half and rub it on toast. You can also brush bread with olive oil and place in 400 oven and toast about 10 to 15 min. Turn when browned.
