3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic

6 (1/2-inch thick) slices Italian or Vienna bread

4 tomatoes, coarsely chopped

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat gas grill on low or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine melted butter and garlic in bowl. Brush both sides of bread slices with butter mixture.

  3. STEP 3

    Place bread onto grill. Grill, turning often, 5 minutes or until crisp and golden. Break grilled bread into small pieces.

  4. STEP 4

    Place all remaining ingredients in serving bowl; mix well. Add bread pieces; toss lightly.

Tip #1

Traditionally, Italian bread salad is made with stale bread. After the salad is tossed it stands for a while so the bread can soak up the juices. Let this salad stand 10-15 minutes before serving if soft, juicy croutons are desired.
