Recipe for Tomato & Bread Salad
1 Loaf of fresh Italian bread; cubed and toasted in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 until lightly browned

½ Cup fresh basil, chopped
½ Cup onion sliced thin
½ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
2 Tablespoons of red wine vinegar
(You can substitute Italian Dressing for
the EVOO and Vinegar)

Your choice of cheese (feta, blue, goat, or shaved parmesan) to taste
In a large bowl combine the toasted bread, tomatoes, basil & onion.
In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients, except the cheese.
Drizzle the dressing over the bread and tomatoes, toss and let stand for 20 minutes.
Just before serving add the cheese.
