Any Italian leftovers, for example: red onion anchovy fillets capers grilled peppers olives First of all: make sure your bread is stale. If you don't have stale bread, tear a fresh focaccia or ciabatta into pieces and bake at 175 °C in the oven (without oil!) for about fifteen minutes.
Roughly chop the JOYN® tomatoes, Chop the other ingredients you want to use, such as grilled peppers, onion, etc.
Tear the stale bread in pieces.
Whisk the olive oil, vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper together.
Mix the JOYN® tomatoes, bread, vegetables and dressing together. Leave for an hour to allow all the flavours to infuse the bread properly.
Finally, just before serving, finish it off with fresh basil.
