Bread Salad

Take a loaf of day-old crusty bread (like baguette) and grate it coarsely, then add one small finely chopped onion, 2 chopped tomatoes, mix together and then add some basil (more or less depending on how much bread you have). Make some simple vinaigrette with oil, white vinegar, (roughly 1 part vinegar to 4 or 5 parts oil), and a bit of water, salt & pepper. Shake together well in a jar, then drizzle slowly over the salad while stirring the salad to distribute it evenly, just enough to moisten it, not wet. Taste to make sure seasonings are ok and adjust if needed. Save leftover vinaigrette for later use. Cover and let sit in the fridge an hour or two, to let flavors mellow and blend.

Hopefully I will get around to making this and taking pictures to add to this post soon. This is another one of my mom's recipes, it's one of my childhood favourites :)
