PANZANELLA (Bread Salad)
In a large bowl toss the following: 2 large tomatoes, sliced, 1 English cucumber peeled and sliced, half a red onion sliced thinly, half a green pepper sliced, half a yellow pepper sliced, a few green olives cut in half (add some black ones too, if you have them around), 1/4 cup basil leaves coarsely chopped, 2 tablespoons Italian parsley coarsely chopped, and a sprinkling of capers.
Make a dressing by combining 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons of white balsamic vinegar, 4 tablespoons of olive oil, some black pepper, a dash of salt, and a pinch of dried oregano. Pour it over the salad. Add the reserved bread and toss everything well. Chill for about an hour, and then serve and enjoy!!!
