Bruschetta Feta Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Megan's Mommy

There are similar recipes posted, but I like the Feta cheese in this one. I lived in Italy for a few years, and this is my twist on their local salad. I like to toss just before serving, so the bread is still crunchy. But if you prefer, you can let it sit for 30-45 minutes to soften the bread more. Fresh, good quality ingredients is a MUST in this recipe. I love to serve this with grilled chicken.

You're so right, Chef #369525, this is outstanding made with quality fresh ingredients. I could live on this; it practically defines summer.

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F
  2. Cut the bread into small bite size pieces.

  4. Toast the bread in the oven until lightly crispy, tossing once, 10-20 minutes.

  6. These steps can be done the night before.
  7. Keep the toasted, cooled bread in a Ziploc bag, and the tomato mixture in the fridge until ready to serve.
  8. The tomato mixture is better if it sits for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to mix.
