Ingredients

  • 1 loaf Italian bread, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, diced

  • 3 roma (plum) tomatoes, seeded and diced

  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese

  • 3 tablespoons red onion, diced

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons honey

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Toss bread cubes with 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper on a large baking sheet until evenly coated; spread mixture into a single layer.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until toasted, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If not serving this immediately, wait to combine the bread with the rest of the salad as it will get soggy.
