Awesome salad! To me, tomatoes and fresh basil are a classic combination that go together like peanut butter and jelly! My bread was already stale, so it didn't take long to dry out. I love the addition of capers in this. I didn't change a thing except to add an extra splash of red wine vinegar. This recipe is a definite keeper!
Excellent recipe. I made one small change...I added chunks of fresh mozarella just before serving. What a hit! I would recommend doubling this recipe...for four people I didn't have enough. So simple and soooo good!
If you like bruschetta, you'll love this salad! Great as written or with the addition of a chopped cucumber or a can of white beans.
I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't use onions (can't stand raw onions), and couldn't find French or Italian bread, so I substituted regular bread. Like several other reviewers, I added 2 small, nearly seedless chopped cucumbers and some chopped mozzarella.
This got a major "Wow" from my family! We will definitely be making it more often, and I am hoping to take the leftovers for lunch tomorrow if my husband doesn't sneak downstairs and eat them all tonight!!
I wasn't a big fan of the bread cubes (I left them out of most of the salad, except tried it with one serving, letting it sit for 10 min. like recipe said) I LOVE the tomato salad, and will keep making this without the bread. Awesome way to use up garden tomatoes before they go bad!
This is defintely a five star recipe. I made as written except at the end added a little balsamic vinegar. This made it even yummier but it wasn't necessary. Obviously, there is quite a bit of chopping but I thought this was super easy to put together....
this salad was awesome. I think it would have been good with chunks of chicken in it too.
This recipe is so easy and flavorful. I didn't change the recipe at all. It tasted like something I would get at a trendy restaurant.
