(1 Votes)
25 Min

Stop! Don't throw away that stale bread. It's great for absorbing the dressing in our tasty and refreshing Italian Bread salad. Perfect for any potluck event, lunch, or even dinner any day of the week!

What You'll Need:
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 10 (1-inch thick) stale Italian bread slices, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 6 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
What To Do:
  1. Whisk together first 4 ingredients in a small bowl until well blended.

  2. Combine bread cubes and remaining 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add dressing; toss gently. Let stand 20 minutes before servings.


Once you've tossed the salad, letting it stand for 20 minutes gives all the flavors a good chance to "marry."
