 Categories: Salads
      Yield: 2 Servings
      1 tb Olive oil
      1    Garlic clove, smashed
      1 sl Good-quality white bread,
           Cut into 1/2-inch cubes
      4    Bacon strips
      1 lg Beefsteak tomato
    1/2 c  Chopped basil
      2 oz (1/2 cup) diced mozzarella
           Freshly ground black pepper
      1 tb Basil-flavoured olive oil
           (see note in directions)
  1 1/2 ts Sherry or red wine vinegar
  Heat olive oil in large skillet.  Add garlic clove and bread cubes.
  Toss over medium-high heat, turning frequently until bread cubes are
  browned, about 5 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and set aside.
  Discard garlic.
  Fry bacon in same skillet until crisp.  Remove and drain, then
  Core and dice tomato.  Arrange in high pile on dinner plate. Top with
  basil and cheese.  Sprinkle with bacon. Season generously with pepper.
  Whisk together basil-flavoured oil and vinegar in cup. Pour over
  salad. Sprinkle with bread cubes.
  Note: Basil-flavoured olive oil is available in most fourmet food
  stores. If not, it is easy to make.  Pour 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  into a cup. Add 2 or 3 minced basil leaves. Press with back of spoon
  to extract basil flavour from herb.  Set aside 30 minutes. Use oil
  and discard basil. If desired, use plain, extra-virgin olive oil in
  the recipe instead. Submitted By ARLENE@TARANTO.COM  On   SAT, 5 AUG
