This famous Tuscan salad has a substantial bread base with the addition of juicy ripe tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and basil to give it flavour and freshness. Served elegantly, in a pretty bowl or on a flat platter, this makes a wonderful appetizer and can be enlarged with the addition of flaked canned tuna in olive oil or cooked fish fillets to make a more filling meal. It is a rustic dish, perfect for hot summer days, and is a useful way of using up precious leftover bread, which needs to be coarse and crusty for this classic recipe.
