  1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees and combine the olive oil and seasoning in a small bowl.
  2. Spread the cubed bread on a rimmed baking sheet and using a pastry brush, lightly coat the cubes with the olive oil and seasoning mixture.
  3. Bake the cubed bread until they are dried out and pale golden brown at the edges. (About 7-15 minutes.) Then let them cool.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the cherry tomatoes, chickpeas, feta, basil and remaining olive oil and seasoning mix.
  5. When ready to serve, add in the toasted bread cubes and enjoy!
