    The Italians call this salad Panzanella; you’ll call it delicious.

    Makes 4 main-dish servings or 8 side-dish servings

    4 cups cubed sourdough or Italian bread (3/4-inch cubes)
    Vegetable cooking spray (may be garlic- or butter-flavored)
    2 cups diced tomato
    1 cup cubed cucumber
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1 15-ounce can, rinsed and drained, or 1 3/4 cups cooked dry-packaged Great Northern or pinto beans
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    Basil Dressing (recipe follows)
    Preheat oven at 375 degrees.
    Generously spray bread cubes with cooking spray and toss; spray again and toss. Arrange bread cubes on jelly roll pan; bake until toasted, about 8 - 10 minutes. Set aside.
    In salad bowl, toss tomato, cucumber, onion and beans with Basil Dressing; season with salt and pepper, add toasted bread cubes and toss again. Serve immediately.
    Basil Dressing

    Makes about 1/2 cup

    1 cup packed basil leaves
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 to 2 tablespoons balsamic or red wine vinegar
    2 tablespoons water
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    Process all ingredients in food processor or blender until almost smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
    TIPS: Bread may be prepared 1 to 2 days in advance; cool and store in airtight container at room temperature. Basil Dressing can be made 1 to 2 days in advance; refrigerate, covered. Any prepared basil or Italian dressing can be substituted
