Garlic Toast Salad With Sun Dried Tomatoes

Garlic Toast Salad With Sun Dried Tomatoes

Have you ever had bread salad?

No? Why not?

I bet you think it’s just a pile of soggy bread, right?

Until last month I was totally one of those why-would-I-eat-a-pile-of-soggy-bread people.

Was I ever wrong. Well, not about the soggy bread. The bread is soggy. But I was wrong to think that soggy bread is a bad thing. Turns out soggy bread is a very very good thing.

I’m not saying that bread dipped in water is good. It’s gotta be soggy in the right way. You know, like how the middle of garlic bread is all soft and squidgy with melted butter? It’s soggy bread, right? But it’s gooooood soggy bread.

That’s what bread salad is: Goooooood Soggy Bread. The sogginess is caused by olive oil, lemon juice, tomato, garlic, onions and herbs. How can that sogginess possibly be a bad thing?

It's Springtime: How do You Use Up Lettuce and Herbs?

When asking people about their weekly produce box, I heard from many of you who belong to Community Supported Agriculture Groups (CSAs). Y’all have reported that springtime is the most difficult because your farm share is flush with lettuce and herbs. So flush that your family starts looking like a bunch of rabbits and you spend all your time clearing every possible surface in preparation for drying out little leaves. (This is not just a problem for those in CSAs but also for all you over-eager gardeners out there.) I get it. I mean, how much lettuce and herbs can you really eat?     Read more >
