Mid-Summer Italian Bread Salad

While the bread may be stale, the rest of the salad’s ingredients including cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, garlic and basil are fresh. Fresh bread can be used but it needs to be toasted until it is dried, crunchy and similar in texture to a crouton. Simply rub garlic in a wooden salad bowl, pull the bread apart into bite-sized pieces and toss in balsamic vinegar, olive oil and vegetables. Before you throw out that bread in your kitchen, take ten minutes to make a salad that will tantalize your taste buds and have you looking at healthy options differently. This dish gets better the longer the flavors marinate, so it is suggested that you make it either a couple of hours or a day in advance for optimal flavor.
