I totally agree that this is a wonderful salad. I had never had this one until about three years ago in a cooking class taught by a popular local chef. It rocks.

This is one of my favorite recipes. So many variations and so many possibilities. It’s delicious eaten outside on a beautiful clear day.

Everyone should have this recipe on hand. I never cared for croutons until I made this for the first time. The dressing and juice from the fresh tomatoes (in the summer) seep into the bread and add to the flavor of the dish. This is all I need for dinner and my husband really likes it too. If we have other vegetables we wish to add, we do.
