Recipe Ingredients for tomato salad with crushed croutons

4 slices Farmhouse Hearty White Bread
5 g shallot
1 clove pressed through garlic press
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound cherry or grape tomatoes, mixed colors if you can find them
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon mellow red wine vinegar (yours isn?t mellow? use less)
1/8 teaspoon table salt
1 pinch sugar
1 Freshly ground black pepper

Recipe Directions for tomato salad with crushed croutons

  1. Prepare the crushed croutons: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Tear bread into chunks and pule them in a food processor until coarsely ground (largest chunks can be lima bean sized). No food processor? Keep tearing the bread up until it is in ragged, mixed sized crumbs.

  3. Spread crumbs on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with shallots, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil and parmesan until croutons are evenly coated with oil.

  4. Bake until golden brown and dry, about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Remove from oven and set aside to cool slightly. (Warm is fine, hot might wilt your tomatoes, boo.)

  6. Assemble salad: Halve each tomato lengthwise and arrange cut side up on a platter.

  7. Whisk together vinegar, olive oil, salt, sugar and a few grinds of pepper in a small dish.

  8. Drizzle over tomatoes. Sprinkle tomatoes with crushed croutons.

  9. Garnish with slivers of basil.
