In a large mixing bowl, squash tomatoes with the back of a spoon to release some of their juices. Add bread chunks, buffalo mozzarella, basil, and Kalamata olives (optional).

When ready to serve, combine balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, add seasoning, and dress the salad. Gently toss, taste and season to liking.
