For the salad:

1 small gluten-free Baguette, torn into small pieces (approximately 4 heaping cups)

4 Roma tomatoes, cut into large chunks

For the Salad:

Preheat oven to 350℉

Scatter the baguette pieces onto a large baking tray and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden and crispy. Set aside.

Place the cut tomatoes in a bowl and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Toss together and set aside 10 minutes to draw liquid from the tomatoes. Strain the liquid and add to a large salad bowl. 

Add the toasted bread, cucumber, red onion, mozzarella, basil, and dressing to the salad bowl. Mix well to combine and set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, allowing the bread to absorb the flavours. Serve over fresh red-leaf lettuce for more volume and crunch.
