Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C (390 degrees Fahrenheit).
Mix the olive oil, minced garlic and herbs, and lightly brush each baguette slice with it.
Arrange on a tray, and bake for about 10 minutes until lightly brown and crispy.
Meantime, cut the cherry tomatoes, slice the pitted black olives, and add them to a bowl together with the basil.
Season with salt and pepper, add the balsamic vinegar, and mix well.
Remove the bread slices from the oven, leave to cool, then top with the tomato mixture and shaved parmesan.
