4–6 people
Prep time
30 minutes
  • 1 tin Mutti polpa
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 jar of roasted peppers drained and rinsed
  • 4 sticks celery
  • 1 bunch basil torn
  • 2 tbsp lilliput capers
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 loaf of stale bread
  • 4 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 150ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 1tsp dried oregano

Preheat your oven to 160C. 

Tear or cut your stale bread in to medium sized pieces, place on a flat roasting tray and place in the oven for 15 minutes to really dry the bread out. Remove from the oven and set aside. 

In a separate large mixing bowl add the Mutti polpa along with salt, pepper oregano and the garlic. Mix well then add the olive oil and vinegar. 

Prepare your vegetables by slicing them all into 2cm slices. 

Toss all the remaining ingredients into the dressing along with the cooled bread, check for seasoning and enjoy.
