A trip to the grill gives the makings of a classic Italian bread salad—a good crusty loaf of bread, ripe summer tomatoes, and basil—a little smokiness and crisp texture. Because this salad can sit out at room temperature for an hour or two, it’s the perfect side for a picnic or barbecue. If you can’t find bocconcini, substitute a large fresh mozzarella cut into 1-inch pieces.

Loved this salad. Kinda like eating a crouton salad :) I used a very hearty Italian loaf. Added avocado just because I like it in all my salads. Definitely try this one if you are already grilling out.
