Crunchy seasoned croutons, ripe plum tomatoes, and fresh cucumbers are tossed in an olive oil blend to make what we think is one of the best bread salad recipes ever. It's a bonus that our Tuscan Bread Salad looks so beautiful, too!

What You'll Need:

    10 ripe plum tomatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
    2 cucumbers, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
    1/2 red onion, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
    1 (5-ounce) package seasoned croutons 
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What To Do:

    In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, and croutons.

    In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper; pour over vegetables and croutons.

    Toss gently and serve immediately.


    You can always add some cooked chicken or shrimp to make this salad a complete meal.
