BHG says "This colorful Tuscan salad may be the inspiration of thrifty cooks using up day-old bread, but its sheer simplicity has made it an all-time favorite. Juicy tomatoes and crisp cucumbers give it refreshing coolness."

Thanks for a nice, different salad! The dressing soaked into the bread nicely and the tomatoes, cucumber and red onion were a lovely combination. Thanks for posting!

This salad was the perfect side for our steak dinner. Everyone enjoyed it . It will be added to the top of my favorites. I used a loaf of day old ciabatta and it was perfect for the salad.

One of my favorite summer salads. Although it's winter right now in Uruguay it was sunny today and I was inspired to make this colorful cool salad. I took it to my husbands work for a potluck and it was a hit! I make it back home, but needed a reminder of ingredients, so thank you so much for this recipe!!! I also added mozzarella and shaved parmesan cheese. I also like to seed my cucumber, cut lengthwise and run a teaspoon down the middle, easily removes all the seeds.
