When you grow your own fruits and veggies it's so exciting to see what will pop up in your garden next. My kids have become little detectives, searching amidst the leaves and vines in our pots and planters and pointing out whenever things look ready to be picked. We're growing a variety of different tomatoes like yellow, red, heirloom, cherry and more so coming up with a lot of different recipes to use them in is essential so nothing goes to waste. Between the abundance of tomatoes, cornucopia of cucumbers and bountifulness of basil covering our yard, I reckoned this summery salad would be something everyone in my house would love….and I was right!
The recipe is simple to prepare and isn't expensive to make because the crusty bread cubes go a long way towards feeding a large family a super fresh meal. If you're looking for a dish that screams "summertime," you have to try this. And if I can't convince you to start your own edible garden, this salad certainly will.
