Serves 4

Prep 10 minutes

1 baguette, cut into 1-inch cubes
¼ cup white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon or spicy brown mustard
½ teaspoon sugar
? teaspoon salt
? teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup olive oil
4 cups packed mixed baby greens
½ cup tomato-basil cheddar cheese, cut into cubes
225g (½ lb) mixed heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered


1. Heat oven to 205°C. Spread bread cubes onto a baking sheet and spritz with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove from oven and let cool.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper. While whisking, add olive oil in a thin stream.

3. In a large bowl, toss together bread cubes, greens, cheese and tomatoes. Drizzle with dressing and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

TEST KITCHEN TIP: Perfect Dressing
If you take the time to slowly emulsify a dressing, it will cling better. Whisk constantly as you pour the oil in a thin stream.
