This colorful Tuscan salad may be the inspiration of thrifty cooks using up day-old bread, but its sheer simplicity has made it an all-time favorite. Juicy tomatoes and crisp cucumbers give it refreshing coolness.
In a large mixing bowl combine bread cubes, chopped tomatoes, onion, cucumber, basil, parsley, and minced garlic.
For dressing, in a glass measure stir together vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper; spoon over salad. Toss gently to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Serve over torn greens. Makes 4 side-dish servings.
