Greek Panzanella.....bread salad

I saw this salad recipe awhile ago from Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network.  A wonderful change from your regular salad.  My daughters said, "Where's the lettuce mom?"  We're sort of bread freaks around here so let's just say this bread salad was a huge hit.  Even though my daughters don't like all the veggies in this salad, they picked out what they liked.  I hoping if I keep giving them meals with different vegetables, they'll try it and like it.  The vinaigrette is excellent.  This has become a favorite salad for all of us.  

This salad is perfect for a cookout or a summer meal.  It's easily doubled for a crowd.  Try it out this 4th of July holiday weekend or anytime this summer.


Happy 4th of July!

***Come back on Wednesday, July 7th, for our monthly Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club menu and a Cookbook giveaway!***

Mom's Cooking Club Lesson:  This recipe uses a hothouse cucumber.  I used a regular cucumber.  Either one is fine.  Also, while browning the bread cubes, I added a little more olive oil for flavor and to help brown them more.
