This is a bread salad that gets better as it sits. Cooking time includes allowing the finished salad to sit for 20 minutes to allow the flavors to develop. From VT July/August 2006.

This is very good. I love the crunch of the toasted french bread. Great flavors.

Great taste. I added some greens to the whole thing and it was good too.

I enjoyed this quite a bit although I wouldn't add the cucumber next time. I really liked the addition of olives and capers to a bread salad. I added a few sliced mushrooms & lots of fresh cracked black pepper as well. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
