      This is a great party salad. I served this as part of a summer "Spaghetti BBQ" party for 13 people. It is certainly a party friendly recipe as components of the salad can be prepared in advance and then just tossed together 30 minutes before serving. I will make this again. My tip would be to used the best quality olive oil that you can find. Thanks for posting.

      Love this salad. I also add small mozzarella balls. When I don't have hot house tomatoes I use grape tomatoes sliced in half. Green and/or calamatta olives are also good mixed in. If bread is too soft I dry it out first in the oven for 10 minutes at 375 before saut?ing . Forgoing the onions doesn't seem to hinder the taste and tends to lessens the burp factor.

      My GF made this salad and I went absolutely nuts for it. Knowing this site, I knew I would find something comparable. I scanned all the recipes and came up with a bit of a different version of this wonderful salad. To the basic recipe, I added roasted red peppers, black olives, sundried tomatoes, artichokes, fresh mozzarella cheese and to the dressing, I added 2 anchovy fillets and about a tsp of oregano and lots of fresh ground pepper. Devine!!! My favorite recipe of the summer!!!
