Ingredients

1
large cucumber, peeled and de-seeded
1
pint grape tomatoes, mixed varieties cut in half
4
slices crusty French bread cut into cubes
Salt and Pepper to taste
4
Tbsp. EVOO
1
Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
1/4
cup shaved Parmesan cheese
2
Tbsp. fresh basil, shredded

Directions

Cut the cumber long way and remove the seeds with a spoon. Then slice long way again and cut into cubes about the same size as the grape tomatoes that are cut in half. In a large bowl, combine the cucumber, tomatoes and bread. Season with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.

Drizzle olive oil mixture onto salad and toss to coat. Add in the cheese and basil and gently toss to combine before serving.
