place vinegar and sugar in a small pot, cook over medium heat stirring once or twice until it is reduced by half and it becomes a syrup.

dice tomato, basil and onion and place in a bowl.

Set oven to broil and place sliced french bread about 2" from broiler, toast on both sides. While bread is still warm rub one side of bread with a peeled garlic clove.
