Ingredients

  • 2 cups day-old rustic bread, cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Pinch sugar
  • 1 tsp Maldon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 large heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 small English cucumber
  • 1 pint coloured cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 long red chili, chopped
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, torn
  • 1 tbsp oregano or marjoram leaves


Directions
1 Toast the bread cubes on a baking sheet in a 375ºF oven until golden. Meanwhile, mix the garlic, vinegar, mustard, sugar and sea salt together in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to emulsify. Set aside.

2 Cut the heirloom tomatoes and cucumber into chunky 1" pieces and slice the cherry tomatoes in half. Place in a large bowl; add the red onion. Peel and pit the avocado and slice into 1" pieces. Add to the bowl along with the chili, toasted croutons, and herbs.

3 Pour the dressing over the salad and toss carefully. Let salad sit for 30 minutes before serving to allow the juices of the tomatoes to combine with the dressing.

Serves 4-6.
