The bread may get top billing in this classic dish, but tomatoes are the real stars.
Use the freshest you can find. That shouldn’t be too hard with summer in full swing and ripe tomatoes everywhere.
In true Italian fashion, this simple preparation highlights the quality of the ingredients. Break out your best oil and vinegar too. It is very important that you use stale bread. Slice it the night before and dry it on a countertop if it’s too fresh.
