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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl toss together bread pieces, tomatoes, onion, and basil. Set aside.

Instructions Checklist
  • For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and shake well. Pour the dressing over the bread mixture; toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Serve bread mixture over romaine lettuce.


To dry bread, tear or cube bread and spread in a shallow baking pan. Let stand at room temperature for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours, stirring once or twice. (Or preheat oven to 300°F. Bake bread pieces for 8 to 10 minutes or until dry but not toasted, stirring once or twice.)
