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!

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.
