This is a little different than other Bread Salads you may have tried, but it is a hit at our house. Use any dressing you like, add sauteed chicken or even tuna...make it your own! We do a lot of Asian dressings, Italian works well too.

  • 2 cups bread cubes (we use French or anything "crusty")
  • 1 medium onion, sliced thin
  • olive oil or sesame oil
  • lettuce
  • salad dressing (we use viniagrettes)


  1. -Sautee the onion in oil- enough to coat the bottom of a frying pan. We use Olive oil and a little bit of Sesmae oil usually.
  2. -When the onions are done to your liking, add the cubed bread, continue to saute. The bread will soak up the oil and turn golden.
  3. -Dump this into a large bowl, add salad dressing to soak into the bread, about 1/2 cup, more if you like. Let sit a few minutes.
  4. -Toss with any salad blend, lettuce will warm and wilt a bit. Add more dressing if desired. Often we make this a meal and add sauteed chicken at the end.
