Italian Panzanilla Salad

This is one of those super quick throw it together salads that works for dinner or as a side dish.  The only cooking involved is toasting up some bread cubes in the oven. The whole salad somes together easily in 15-20 minutes.

1/3 baguette loaf
2 T. olive oil
2 T. balsamic vinegar
1 cucumber, peeled and cubed
1/4 red onion, diced
1 c. crumbled fresh mozzarella
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 c. cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in 1/2s
1 can cannelini beans, drained
1 clove garlic, minced.

Combine oil and vinegar for dressing.  Cut bread into cubes and place on a cooky sheet.  Sprinkle with some additional olive oil(besides that used for the dressing) and salt and pepper.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Combine all ingredients, including the dressing.  Toss and serve.
