Tip
Here's an easy way to thinly slice a bunch of basil leaves all at once: Stack the leaves and roll lengthwise into a tight roll, then cut across the roll.
The toasts can be made 2 or 3 days ahead and stored at room temperature. Create the tomato mixture a day ahead and refrigerate. Wait to slice the basil until the last minute so it doesn’t turn dark.
