For the Salad

  • 4 cups rustic sourdough baguette, cut into cubes
  • 1 1/2 lbs large heirloom tomatoes in varying colors, cut into bite sized chunks

For the Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Pinch of salt and black pepper

  4. Add the dried bread cubes and vinaigrette to the tomato mixture. Toss until thoroughly combined.
