stale bread, summer veggies

The secret ingredient to this bright dish? Stale bread.

This salad shows off summer vegetables at their peak. The bread makes it a meal, but it can be made even more substantial with mozzarella balls, some olives, diced chicken, or grilled shrimp. Soak the onion in cold water to take the edge off its bite and keep it from dominating the rest of the dish.
