I wish that you could have seen my Dad’s face when I placed this salad on his plate the other night at dinner.
We had cooked a few chickens on the grill and I thought that this salad would be a perfect complement to the smoky flavor of the chicken.
Fresh vegetables, delicious bread, and a light flavorful dressing…
a great salad.
My Dad couldn’t understand that you could make a salad with bread instead of lettuce,
but he definitely gave it a try.
1 loaf of french bread, cut into 1-inch pieces and toasted
1 cup cherry tomatoes, roasted
1 cup corn, grilled
2 tablespoons capers
1 small shallot, thinly sliced
1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, shredded
20 basil leaves
1/4 cup champagne vinaigrette
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and toss with vinaigrette.
