Around here, at the end of the day on Sundays, the bakery sells off it’s fresh bread at buy one get one free. What to do with all that bread? Well, the first loaf usually gets served & demolished at dinner in Sunday night. The second loaf gets saved for the next day, divided in two, with half for breadcrumbs and the other half for this yummy salad!
Yesterday’s bread salad
5 medium tomatoes
2 large seedless cucumbers
1 tablespoon your favorite herb seasonings (oregano & basil or Herbs de Provence)
1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1/2 loaf day old bakery bread, cubed (I like an italian garlic loaf)
1 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Combine vinegar and parmesan in a large bowl or cup. Stir well. Add olive oil and whisk or vigorously shake until well blended.
Cube the cucumber, tomato & bread and place in a large mixing bowl.
Sprinkle herbs over the top and toss in half the dressing. Add more dressing if you like and eat immediately or the bread will go soggy.
