    Italian Bread and Tomato Salad

    Fresh sprigs of spring basil bring a bold taste to day-old bread and the ubiquitous tomato. If you make this salad later in the season, add heirloom tomato varieties for colour and flavour differences.

    Dressing

    1/4 cup (60 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
    1/4 cup (60 mL) lemon juice
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped fresh oregano 
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) each sea salt and fresh ground pepper

    Salad

    4 cups (1 L) seeded and diced tomatoes
    2 cups (500 mL) cubed stale whole grain bread, crusts trimmed
    1/4 cup (60 mL) roughly chopped fresh basil
    1/4 cup (60 mL) thinly sliced sweet onion

    To make dressing: in large bowl, whisk all dressing ingredients together until well combined. Let stand for at least 5 minutes and whisk again briskly before combining with salad.

    To the dressing bowl, add tomatoes, bread, basil, and onion. Let stand for 5 minutes, tossing often to distribute flavours, before serving.
