Tuscan Bread Salad

We'd never eaten anything quite like this before, and it is really delicious ! I used 5-day old slices of ciabatta, and am amazed at how they softened up. I had a yellow pepper instead of a red one, and I think this made the salad even prettier. Following evelyn/athens line of thinking, I also added about 3 TBS fresh basil chiffonade. We found the viniagrette was just right as posted, not too bitter. I served this with a very spicy jerk chicken and they complemented each other perfectly. I'll be keeping this one in mind each time I have stale bread. Thanks for posting !
