Turn stale bread into a de­li­cious salad

Central Queensland News - - WEEKEND -

WE AL­WAYS strug­gle to use up stale bread at home, so this recipe is great to make when you don’t man­age to eat the whole loaf. Tra­di­tion­ally it’s made with crispy flat­bread, but I find we use more sour­dough than flat­bread so I’ve ad­justed the recipe to re­flect what most peo­ple have at home.

◗ ¼ loaf sour­dough bread, cut into large cubes 100ml olive oil ◗ 2 small Le­banese (short) cu­cum­bers, coarsely chopped ◗ 2 vine-ripened toma­toes, coarsely chopped ½ small red onion, cut into thin wedges ◗ 3 tbs oregano leaves ◗ 1 hand­ful co­rian­der (cilantro) leaves ◗ 2 tbs pome­gran­ate mo­lasses.

◗ 3 tbs olive oil ◗ 3 tbs lemon juice cloves, crushed ◗ 1 tbs sumac.

Pre­heat the oven to 170C.

Put the bread cubes on a bak­ing tray, driz­zle with the oil and ◗ 3 gar­lic toss to com­bine. Bake for about 7-8 min­utes, un­til the bread is toasted and golden. Set aside to cool.

To make the dress­ing, mix all the in­gre­di­ents to­gether and sea­son with salt and freshly ground black pep­per.

Put the bread cubes, cu­cum­ber, tomato, onion and herbs in a large bowl and mix to com­bine.

Pour the dress­ing over and lightly toss with your hands. Driz­zle the pome­gran­ate mo­lasses over the top.
