A few years back, I took a knife skills cooking class and made a salad that over the years has transformed into the one I will be sharing with you today. This salad is so delicious and bursting with flavor.
Grilled Bread Salad from Elizabeth Joan Designs
Olive oil for brushing bread
6 Handfuls of salad greens
Fresh mozzarella, cut into bite-size pieces
4 oz. Spicy capicola, thinly sliced and cut into bite size pieces
1 Red bell pepper- finely chopped
1 Green bell pepper- finely chopped
2 Tbsp. Parmigiano Reggiano, finely grated
2 Tbsp. Basil leaves, roughly chopped
4 Tbsp. Chives, minced
1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
First, slice the baguette.
Then brush bread with olive oil.
Grill until brown on both sides.
In a large mixing bowl, put salad greens, bell peppers, mozzarella, capicola, crushed red pepper, basil and chives. Toss.
Sprinkle with Parmesan. Serve with bread and dressing of your choice.
This is one of my favorite salad recipes of all time and I love it with a good vinaigrette. Yummy!!! What salad dressing would you choose?
