Instructions: Preheat the oven at 375 degrees for 5-10 minutes. Place bread cubes into a baking pan. Drizzle olive oil on top and mix well. Season it with salt and pepper. Bake it for 10-12 minutes or until it starts to brown. While it’s baking, in a large bowl, mix tomatoes, cucumber, red bell pepper, onions, basil, capers  and olives.  Remove bread from the oven and add cubes and the salad dressing. Combine well and let it sit for a few minutes before serving, allowing the flavors to blend.  Top with cheese before serving. *You can use a variety of dressings on this salad. If you don’t want to use a bottled dressing just add a mixture of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
