Ingredients

  • 4 Cups cubed (1-inch pieces) crusty bread
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 4 heirloom tomatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 Cup sliced cucumbers
  • 1 ear corn, sliced off the cob
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 Tablespoons chiffonade basil
  • 1/2 Cup Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the bread cubes on a baking sheet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and toss to coat. Bake until golden, about 12-15 minutes, and set aside to cool.

Then, place the tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, onion, basil, olives, and bread in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt. Pour onto the salad and toss to coat. Serve.

Heirloom Tomato Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
