Bread Salad


I am honored to be posting over at Cooking Healthy for Me today.  Ann is lucky enough to be visiting family in England, and asked if I would fill in for her.  Of course!!  Given that Ann is the Queen of healthy meals, I had to make something to fit in over there.  I made my absolute favorite salad.  I think the proper chef name for this salad in Panzanella, but in my family we call it Bread Salad.  Big chucks of toasty bread, tangy balsamic vinaigrette dressing, sweet tomatoes, crunchy pumpkin seeds…..yum!  Please go tell Ann I said hi, and check out this great salad.  Even my picky husband will eat this (if I leave off the tomatoes and cucumbers and add avocado and walnuts).  See it is versatile too :)
