When I first saw this recipe, I thought it would be like one of my favorite Middle Eastern salads, Fattoosh. No way! It's better, in a totally different way. Bursting with Mediterranean flavors, this salad is addictive. I used fresh rosemary and also used a healthy splash of balsamic vinegar. The tiny bit that was left over from my BBQ was taken to work the next day, where I had to carefully guard it in the break room. Yo, Richard, this one rocks!
bread salad...we had never had anything like this before, the flavor was incredible. i prepared it exactly as the recipe said, didn't change a thing. this is something i could serve just for the 2 of us, or when entertaining and doing something a little more fancy, because i think it makes a wonderful impression on people (it did us..lol). i thought it was great. really easy to make too.
As Richard's brother I can say this is one of the best things he brings to one of my cookouts. It is awsome try it.
