Tuscan Salad

February 25, 2014

3 assorted heirloom tomatoes, one for slicing, 2 for dicing
1/2 cup heirloom cherry tomatoes, cut in half
2 cups ciabatta bread crumbs
6 basil leaves torn
1/2 cucumber diced
1/2 fennel bulb, shaved thin
1/4 red onion, shaved thin
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tbsp sugar
salt and pepper


Mix the red wine vinegar, olive oil, sugar, salt and pepper and pour over diced cucumbers for a light pickle. Also use that liquid to dress your tomatoes and bread. Slice one tomato very thin for the base of your salad. Season with salt and pepper and then add the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Place the chopped tomatoes, fennel, onions and bread on top of the tomato disks and garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, torn basil and basil seeds if you have them.
