Pre-heat the grill on the oven to 200°C. Slice the bread into pieces about 2cm thick, brush both sides with olive oil and place on a baking tray.
Grill for 3-4 minutes on 1 side, remove from oven, turn the slices of bread over and grill for a further 2-3 minutes until toasty. Keep a close eye on the bread as it can go from a nice golden brown to burnt very quickly! Remove from the oven when toasted enough for your liking.
In a small bowl combine the chopped tomatoes, basil, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar & garlic. Add salt & pepper to taste.
Place the toasted bread and bruschetta topping on a platter and serve immediately.
