Tuscan Tomato and Bread Salad
Roma tomatoes and basil combine in this simple Italian salad, that's both sweet and delicious with some added crunch. If you don't have stale bread you can toast bread in the oven to get a similar result. We've left out the capsicum to really give the tomatoes pride of place this season but you could add it if you like!
- 200g stale ciabatta loaf or sourdough (have you tried our Leavain Bread?)
- 600g ripe roma tomatoes roughly chopped
- sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1 handful small capers, drained
- 1 small red onion, peeled and very finely sliced
- )optional) 8 anchovy fillets in oil, drained and finely sliced
- red wine vinegar
- extra virgin olive oil
- a bunch of fresh basil
Recipe by Jamie Oliver
- Tear the ciabatta into rough 3cm pieces and place on a tray. Leave aside in a warm place for around 30 minutes – this helps to dry it out.
- Place the tomatoes in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Rinse the capers, squeezing out any excess liquid and add to the bowl, along with the onion, ciabatta and anchovies, if using. Toss the mixture together with your hands, then stir in 2 tablespoons of vinegar and about 3 times as much extra virgin olive oil. Taste and add a little more salt, pepper, vinegar or oil, if needed.
- Tear in the basil leaves, stir together and serve.
