• Add vinegar, remaining garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil to the bowl.
• Add tomatoes, onions, peppers, zucchini, squash, and herbs to the bowl; mix together.

*If bread is too dry to cut, pour tomato juice and water over bread so it can be softened. If needed, add a little bit more water. Allow the bread to rehydrate for 20 minutes.
