Course: Salad
Cuisine: Italian
Calories: 160kcal
Author: Diane @recipesforourdailybread

Ingredients

  • 3 tomato cut up in small bites
  • 1 cucumber also cut up into small bites
  • 1/2 of small purple or a Vidalia onion cut into small bites
  • 8 fresh basil leaves chopped or 1 tablespoon Tomato Basil Ms. Dash
  • half of a leftover wheat baguette or french loaf diced into 1 inch pieces. I used 3/4 of a 1 pound Multigrain French Bread loaf The bread will absorb the oil and vinegar and adds a wonderful surprise to the salad.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper to taste.
  • The ratio for the oil and vinegar is 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar. You can adjust the vinegar and oil for your taste. I like using
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar and 1/3 cup olive oil.

Instructions

  • Toss the salad to coat everything really well with the vinegar and oil.
  • Marinate this salad about 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving.
