Bread and Tomato Salad

While "bread salad" may sound unusual, you'll find that this blend from Joan Gwynn of Watsonville, California is unusually good. A simple dressing jazzes up a medley of bread cubes, tomatoes, basil and red onion.

    This was very good, but, l slowly browned the bread cubes in olive oil with a clove of garlic, made them crunchy. Very easy and tasty. Janet. VFE

    This sounds wonderful! A family member does not like fresh tomatoes so will replace with mushrooms.

    I'm sorry but a "light and healthy" salad with 15 Grams of fat??? I don't think so.
