What you need
3 cups day old bread, cubed into bite-sized chunks
2 medium tomatoes, wedged
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
5-6 large basil leaves, cut in ribbons
2/3 cup fresh mozzarella, in bite size chunks
1/3 cup olive oil, divided
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt & pepper
What you do
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine 1/4 cup of oil with the minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Place the bread in a bowl and toss with olive oil. Place on single layer on baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, until lightly toasted.
Mix the remaining olive oil with balsamic vinegar. Combine the toasted bread chunks, tomatoes, red onion, basil, mozzarella, and oil & vinegar.
Allow to sit for about 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
You can also add olives (though we're not fans) or cucumber slices to this salad but I really enjoyed the simplicity and tangy-ness of these ingredients.
