Tuscan Bread Salad

bread salad

A different way to serve a sandwich or salad – Tuscan Bread Salad made with leftover day old bread.  What I love about this salad, is how you turn day old bread into a salad with a few of your favorite vegetable toppings.  Beware:  if you use fresh bread, the bread becomes soggy!  If you don’t have day old bread, you can cheat by toasting cubed bread in the oven.

There are a lot of variations of this salad – here’s one of my favorites:  leftover roasted peppers, roasted artichokes, roasted garlic, pitted olives, fresh tomatoes and fresh chopped basil.  Measure 1/2 cup of each of the toppings to five cups of cubed bread.  Drizzle your favorite extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

A perfect vegan and vegetarian salad ….

a presto,

Maria
