¼ pound shredded 'Piave' or Parmigiano cheese

¼ cup sherry or red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped

1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ teaspoon honey

½ teaspoon salt

⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Italian bread cubes- if you can't find ciabatta, substitute foccacia (2-3 cups should do it)
