Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. cool until the bread can be handled, then crush to give coarse crumbs. Dice the tomatoes roughly. Peel and dice the cucumber, cutting into smaller pieced than the tomato. Peel and dice the onion, celery and carrot to be the same size as the cucumber. Place all the prepared vegetables in a very large bowl. Pick the leaves from the basil stems and tear them into pieces, adding to the bowl. Season lightly and stir in the vinegar. Now add the breadcrumbs and thoroughly toss the mixture together. Chill for 2 hours. Pour on about 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil (or to taste), then toss again and serve in soup plates.
