The perfect salad for your summer finds from the farmer's market.


  • 5 cups rustic multigrain bread, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 medium, ripe tomatoes of mixed variety, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 2 ripe peaches, cut in half & sliced thin
  • 1/2 small red onion, cut in half and sliced thin
  • 10 large basil leaves cut into thin strips

For the salad dressing

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 3 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Spread bread pieces out on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Bake 6 minutes or until lightly toasted, not browned. Remove from oven and let cool.

    tomatoes, peaches, red onion and basil.

    bowl. Drizzle over salad as desired.


If you can't find a rustic multigrain bread, swap it out for another hearty loaf of your choosing such as ciabatta or sourdough.
