The fragrance of basil, the color of tomatoes and the flavor of extra virgin olive oil – the healthiest and most sustainable face of the summer. Puglia friselle is a kind of bread cracker from the Puglia region of Italy – as it’s hard to get in the UK, you could use slightly toasted thick slices of chewy wholemeal bread or rolls.
Ingredients for 4 portions
- Friselle (or slices of wholemeal bread, toasted) 4
- Tomatoes 200 g
- Extra virgin olive oil 2 tbsp
- Oregano a pinch
- Fresh basil to taste
- Pitted black olives to taste
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
Put the friselle on a plate and moisten them on top with a little water. If using brown bread/rolls, toast lightly under the grill or in the toaster.
In the meantime, cut the tomatoes into chunks and dress with oil, salt, a sprinkle of pepper and a little oregano.
Add a few pitted black olives and a few roughly chopped basil leaves. Mix together well.
Add the mixture to the friselle together with a few whole basil leaves.

To limit our impact on the environment, we advise you to remain within 1 kg CO2-equivalent per meal, including all the courses you eat. Bear in mind that plant-based dishes are more likely to have a low environmental impact.
Even though some of our suggestions exceed the recommended 1 kg CO2-equivalent per meal, that doesn't mean you should never make them; it's the overall balance that counts. Regularly eating a healthy and eco-friendly diet in the long term offsets even the dishes with the most impact, as long as you don't make them too often.
