Tuscan summer salad of bread, tomato. The traditional Italian way involves soaking stale bread in water, but this version uses extra virgin olive oil for superior flavour. Balsamic pearls add a touch of excitement and theatre to this classic salad, giving an explosion of sweet and sour with every bite.
