This is a typical Tuscan recipe that is made on the basis of bread, onion and vinegar.  If you have old bread around the kitchen this simple dish is an excellent quick fix!  It is basically a decomposed bruschetta you can eat in place of a salad.  Enrich it with beans, tomatoes and some fresh greens. You can also think about adding in carrots, celery, olives, or cucumber.

Fresh, light, and bursting with natural flavour. You can’t help but feel good after eating it!

INGREDIENTS
