This classic Italian bread salad gets a twist with chunks of Ontario mozzarella, fresh peaches and a ripe tomato vinaigrette.
Preheat oven to 350F (180°C). On a large rimmed baking sheet, arrange torn bread in an even layer. Drizzle with 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil. Bake for about 10 minutes or until firm and dry but not browned.
Using medium-size holes on a box grater set over a bowl, grate tomato halves. Discard skin. In blender, combine tomato pulp, basil, parsley, vinegar, garlic, salt and oregano. Blend until puréed, then slowly drizzle in remaining oil with motor running.
In a large bowl, toss bread lightly with half of the vinaigrette. Let stand for 5 minutes or until bread absorbs some of the dressing, then add mozzarella, arugula and peaches. Toss together. Drizzle remaining vinaigrette over top.
