1 Break the freselle or bread into bite-size pieces and place them in a bowl. Sprinkle with about 1/4 cup cool water or enough to slightly soften the bread.
2 Add the tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, and basil to the bowl. Drizzle with oil and vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss well.
3 Add the ice cubes to the salad and let stand 15 minutes. Toss again and taste for seasoning, adding more vinegar if needed. Serve immediately.
VARIATION: You can make the Pugliese version of this salad, called cialedda. They use a round variety of cucumber (but use what is available), plus radishes, arugula, and celery.
