I combined this recipe with another one and I just love this salad!!! These are the things I did different: used red and yellow peppers, used thin sliced red onion instead of the green onion, added capers, and the dressing was olive oil, minced garlic, dijon mustard, champagne vinegar...salt/pepper. I also toasted the bread cubes in olive oil in a fying pan ontop of the stove. Wow...what a great tasting salad!! Used lots of chopped basil, too! Adds a ton of freshness. I made this with grilled Italian sausage and "Zucchini Patties" from this site. Definately a keeper!


Wonderful!! I would only make this salad when very ripe tomatoes and fresh basil are available. We went to the farmer's market and purchased the ingredients and took it to a pitch in. A great success! The bread soaks up and holds the delicious juices from the tomatoes and seasonings. Yummy


This was a HIT! I sprayed the bread crumbs with Garlic flavored cooking spray before baking. Worked like a charm.
