1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place bread on a large baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes or until crisp, stirring once. Transfer to a large bowl.

2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Add celery and cook for 5 minutes more. Add vegetables and remaining ingredients except oil to bowl with bread and mix well. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Drain well on paper towels. (May be prepared ahead and reheated in a 400°F oven.) Drizzle with additional maple syrup, if you like.
