Bread Salad (Panzanella)

Inspired by ... who else? Rachel Ray. 
Crusty bread - (I used walnut cranberry) cut in bite-sized pieces
Thinly sliced red onion
Cubed tomatoes
Grated garlic
Shaved Parmesan
Mozzarella - cut into small pieces
Thinly sliced salami
A whole lot of fresh basil, torn.

Drizzle with EVOO and a little red wine vinegar. Let sit for a while before serving. 

Real panzanella starts with stale bread, refreshed by soaking in water and wringing it dry.
