Tuscany is famous for lots of things, including its classic bread salad. Well, now we can make it at home, too, using fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions -- in just minutes!

Serves: 8

Preparation Time: 15 min

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 (see Note)
     
  • 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:
  1. In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, and croutons.
     
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper; pour over vegetables and croutons.
     
  3. Toss gently and serve immediately.
Notes
  • You can always add some cooked chicken or shrimp to make this salad a complete meal.
