Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

When the foam from the butter subsides, remove the skillet from the heat and add the garlic and bread and mix well. Transfer skillet to the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the bread is golden brown, tossing once.
  3. In the meantime, combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, mozzarella and onions in a large mixing bowl.
