Directions:

  1. Build a fire in your grill. When the coals are all ignited, the flames have died down, and the temperature is medium (see Gauging the temperature), you're ready to cook.
  2. Brush the bread rounds with oil on both sides, then place on the grill directly over the coals and cook until nicely toasted and brown on one side (about 4 minutes). Flip the bread over and grill the other side until golden and crusty (3-4 minutes more).
  3. While the bread is on the grill, combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and parsley in a bowl. Whisk together the oil and vinegar in another bowl, then add just enough dressing to moisten the salad, tossing gently until evenly mixed.
  4. Place a grilled bread round on each salad plate. At the last minute, toss the feta cheese with the tomato salad and season with salt and pepper. Top each bread round with a portion of the salad and serve.
