Feel free to toss salad with any Italian, or oil and vinegar based dressing of your choice. A balsamic vinaigrette works great with this too.

    AN OUTSTANDING SALAD! I used a heavy winter wheat bread then followed the recipe the rest of the way, & the salad was something I'll definitely be making again & again! Thanks for the post!

    This was so FANTASTIC! Once we finished it DH and I both said, "We should've made more!" I added some minced onions and one clove garlic chopped to the dressing. I also just used plain wheat toast to make it a little healthier and it still turned out perfect. THANKS! Made for veg*n swap.

    Very Good! Made this to go with supper tonight and it was delicious. I used cheese and garlic croutons and chicken broth as that is what I had on hand and we both like it alot. The only thing that I would do different is not to mix the bread in with the dressing and veggies. I will just mix everything except the bread and put it on top of the bread when serving it. I will definitely make this again, thanks for sharing.

    made this for my dinner tonite. fast; tasty and easy. i loved the idea of rubbing the garlic on the toasted bread; gave it just the right amount of flavor! i had to make a few subs b/c of what i had on hand...i had to use just olive oil, salt, pepper, a bit of sugar and red wine vinegar for the dressing. i will be making this again with the specified dressing though. the green peppers should not be left out as the roasted flavor really adds depth to the salad. great recipe!
