Everything in this salad is fresh except the bread! Prepare this salad by using a loaf of artisan bread or ciabatta that is a touch stale. If your bread is too fresh, toast it until it is just nearly as dry and crunchy as a crouton.

Method Prep:15min › Ready in:15min
Rub peeled clove of garlic around a wooden salad bowl.
In the prepared salad bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, garlic and herbs. Salt to taste and toss thoroughly. Allow to sit at room temperature in the salt so that the vegetables release their juices (at least 5 to 10 minutes).
Pull apart or chop the bread into bite-size pieces. Add to salad bowl and toss. Add enough olive oil and vinegar to lightly coat, toss again and serve.
