2 cloves garlic minced
1 day old loaf Italian bread cut or torn into pieces
2 cups chopped Roma tomatoes
1 cup cucumber - peeled, seeded and chopped
1 cup coarsely chopped red onion, not minced
1 cup chopped fresh basil
2 tsps. Salty-Savory-Sweet Italian Seasoning Blend
1/2 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 cup mozzarella chunks (I often use low fat Feta instead)
Salt and pepper to taste
In salad bowl, combine the bread, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, garlic and basil. Sprinkle in 2 teaspoons or more according to your preference of Italian seasoning and blend by hand until all ingredients are evenly coated with spices.
In small bowl mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar thoroughly and pour over salad. Let stand for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours before serving, toss with cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.
