Bread and Tomato Salad

Here's a light, simple recipe, for those times when you don't feel like cooking (like me, tonight).

Bread and Tomato Salad
serves 6

1/2 loaf Italian bread, cut in cubes
2 ripe tomatoes, cut in cubes
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbl Balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup chopped frsh basil
salt and black pepper to taste

In large bowl, combine bread and tomato cubes. In seperate bowl, mix oil, vinegar, basil, salt and pepper. Add this dressing to bread mixture, and toss lightly. Let stand 15-20 minutes, to allow flavors to intermingle, and toss lightly again. Serve with side dish of freshly grated Parmesan for sprinkling.
