  • First cut the bread into cubes.

    For fresh bread, it is advisable to lightly toast the bread cubes in a pan without fat over medium heat.

    is just the right thing to use in salads.

  • Peel and cut the onion into fine strips.

    Peel and finely chop the garlic.

  • Wash the tomatoes, cucumber and peppers and cut everything into cubes.

    steep for at least an hour

    until the bread becomes softer.
