Summer has finally come to MA! These flavors taste like summer to me and this was one of the favorite quick lunches my mom would make on hot July weekends growing up. It's the perfect antidote to leftover bread. —student epicure
thick slices crusty white bread, like ciabatta (I had just scant 1 1/3 c. bread cubes)
Toast bread. Rub each side generously with the garlic clove then cut into large bite-size cubes. Toss with tomato, cucumber, and basil. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic (I ended up using about 2 T oil and 1 T balsamic). Season with salt and pepper. Eat immediately.
