Salads usually are made to pack in the vegetables and keep you low on calories. If that is your goal, this Bread and Grilled Tomato Salad is not for you. This is a hearty salad. Ingredients for this two-portion dish includes slightly stale bread rolls, butter, minced garlic, tomatoes, purple onion, minced fresh basil, ground tarragon, extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, ground black pepper, and feta or queso fresco cheese.

Oh this recipe is divine. The key here is to make sure the bread is stale otherwise it will turn to mush. This has so many rich flavors and it is decadent.
