  • In a large bowl combine bread cubes, tomatoes, onion, and basil. Set aside.

  • For dressing, in a screw-top jar combine vinegar, oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and shake well. Pour dressing over bread mixture; toss gently to coat.

  • Let stand for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Serve bread mixture over lettuce.

Tip:

To save time, substitute 1/4 to 1/3 cup bottled Italian salad dressing for the homemade dressing.
