Number of Servings: 3


    3 slices Italian bread (Tuscan unsalted), dried
    2 cups Water (or sufficient to cover bread)
    1/2 medium tomato, diced
    1 small cucumber, peeled and diced
    1/4 cup purple onion, diced
    10 basil leaves, coarsly chopped
    2 Tbs. olive oil
    2 Tbs. Cider vinegar
    1/2 tsp. Salt (or to taste)
    1/8 tsp. Pepper (or to taste)


Let bread dry out (eg day-old bread). Cover bread with water in a bowl and soak overnight or several hours until thoroughly saturated. Squeeze water out through sieve or strainer. Toss with other ingredients. Serve chilled and garnish with sprig of basil.

This is a traditional Tuscan summertime salad. Fresh and filling, a couple of servings can be a meal in itself.

  • I made this last night except I added olives, red onions (guessing this may be the same as purple onion?), skipped the water and added grilled salmon on top. I also used red wine vinegar instead of cider vinegar. - 8/24/10
