It seems so disingenuous to call Bread Salad a salad. But I suppose it’s really just a different (BETTER!) treatment of croutons.
I have mentioned this salad more than once. Because I love it more than I love my luggage.
On my birthday, Alicia was kind enough to post the recipe, which I have wanted forever. I’d finally decided that Bread Salad might just be her Secret Recipe, and I should shut up about it already.
Everyone who loves to cook should have at least one Secret Recipe. I alternate between Apple Cake, which everyone likes, and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, which only the smart people like. (Shut it. They are made of awesome.)
But just for me, she wrote it all down and posted it: Alicia’s Bread Salad, which none of us will ever make as well as she does
It’s true. Yours won’t be as good. Sorry. You should give it a shot anyway, though. Even bad Bread Salad is better than other salad. Unless the other salad has bacon.
I’m making it RIGHT NOW, and I already know how short it falls. But I am grateful to be able to take a shot at it, because otherwise I would have to ask her to make it once a week, and that’s just mean.
(There is no chard in it, naturally. No lettuce at all. But it’s a salad. So she says…)
