Author Jacqueline


  • 1/2 loaf day-old Italian or French bread
  • 2 large tomatoes chopped (I used a red and orange tomato for color)
  • 1/2 cucumber chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced or pressed
  • handful fresh basil rough chopped
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 red wine vinegar
  • 2 T romano cheese finely grated


  • Add bread, tomatoes, garlic, cucumbers, olive oil, salt & pepper, vinegar and basil in a large bowl and toss until ingredients are evenly incorporated. Let stand for 5-10 minutes to let the flavors come together. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.
