4 large vine ripened tomatoes, cut into wedges
1/2 loaf stale country style Italian bread about 4 cups
1 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onions
1 large cucumber pealed and sliced into quarters
1/4 red wine vinegar
1/2 extra virgin olive oil
1 bunch of fresh basil torn
salt and pepper to taste
In a large mixing bowl whisk together vinegar and olive oil. Add tomatoes, bread, cucumber, onion and basil. Toss together and season with salt and pepper.
Let sit for 15-30 minutes at room temperature. Do not refrigerate, it will ruin the texture of the tomatoes.
Tip* Remove some of the seeds and liquid from the tomatoes. It will be juicy enough!
