Bread & Tomato Salad

From: EatingWell

When it's too hot to cook, just step outside and gather tomatoes and basil from your garden, cut up some day-old country bread and make this flavorful, easy salad, our take on the classic Italian bread salad known as panzanella.

3 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons  lemon juice
1 small clove  garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 cups  diced seeded tomatoes, (1 1/2 pounds)
2 cups  cubed whole-wheat country bread, (5 ounces), crusts removed
1/4 cup  thinly slivered red onion
3 tablespoons  chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons  capers, rinsed
4 4-1/2-ounce cans  sardines, (see Ingredient note), optional
1. Whisk oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add tomatoes, bread, onion, basil and capers. Toss to combine. Let the salad sit for about 5 minutes to allow it to absorb the dressing's flavors, stirring occasionally. Serve at room temperature.
Ingredient Note: Our test kitchen is fond of Bela brand sardines from Olhao, Portugal. They are firm, lightly smoked and succulent.
