Recipe- Italian Bread Salad

I hadn't heard of this before, until a friend explained. The more she spoke, the more by mouth watered! It seems like a light alternative to a heavy summer side.

Italian Bread Salad


  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 (1 pound) loaf Italian bread
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup cucumber - peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups chopped fresh basil
  • 1/8 cup chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


  1. Rub a peeled clove of garlic around a wooden salad bowl.
  2. Pull apart or chop the bread into bite-size pieces.
  3. In the prepared salad bowl, combine the bread, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, garlic, basil and thyme. Add enough olive oil and vinegar to lightly coat, toss and serve.

Enjoy! :)
