Coat loaf pan with olive oil.
Bring salted water to a boil over high heat.
Add cornmeal in a slow, steady stream, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to press out lumps.
Stir until all cornmeal has been added.
Simmer and stir continuously for 45 minutes.
Mixture should be thick and pull away from sides of pan.
Mix in butter.
Pour polenta into prepared loaf pan.
Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
Remove polenta from pan and cut into 1/2-inch slices.
While polenta is chilling, prepare tomato sauce.
Combine tomatoes, celery, and pepper in a deep bowl.
In a small bowl, combine basil, salt, mustard, sugar, and vinegar.
