Zesty Italian Bread and Tomato Salad

  • 1/2 lb hard and crusty bread
  • 1/2 cup mineral water
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, diced (about 1/2")
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 red onion, quartered and finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil and Italian Parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar


Tear bread into 1" pieces. Put in a salad bowl and sprinkle with mineral water. Add tomatoes, pepper flakes, onion, and herbs. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil and vinegar. Pour over salad and add salt and pepper to taste. Toss to mix well, but don't over do it, the bread will get soggy. Serve this salad as is, for 4, or a dinner salad for 2 with the addition of thin slices of Italian Proscuitto around the rim of the plate. And hey, while your at it, sprinkle a bit of fresh grated Romano or parmesan cheese!!
