Fresh and Crunchy Italian Bread Salad

Fresh and Crunchy Italian Bread Salad

Besides the bread, everything is fresh in this Italian salad! Prepare this recipe using country bread or ciabatta bread from the day before. If your bread is too fresh, you can grill it a little bit so that it’s as dry and crisp as a crouton.
