Gotta Love it Basil Salad

Basil’s refreshing taste and lovely aroma is prominently featured in this recipe, as it is the star ingredient. Yup, you heard me–no romaine, no spinach, no arugula.  BASIL!

Pretty simple actually. The ingredients are pictured above.

8-10 ounces of fresh basil leaves

1 cup mini heirloom tomatoes, halved

half a red onion, thinly sliced

3 cups of cubed rosemary bread or plain baguette

1 cup of crumbled feta cheese

olive oil

balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper

serves 5 people

  1. Wash and pat dry the basil leaves. No stem.  Roughly chop the leaves.
  2. I  like to toast my bread for a few minutes in the oven but day old bread works too.
  3. Add all the ingredients together. Mix and toss well with balsamic and olive oil. Season with S&P, according to taste.

And, here is the completed salad. Looks like the ingredients except in a bowl. Everyone who I have served this too absolutely loves it. I hope you enjoy it too!
