- In a small mixing bowl combine the peppers, onion, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, 4 tablespoons of the oil, red wine vinegar and salt. Mix well and refrigerate while you toast the bread.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Spread the torn bread onto a 13x18 inch baking sheet and drizzle with the remaining oil. Toast for 8-10 minutes. Remove to a large mixing bowl.
