Do you love Bruschetta?  If you do, you are going to love this Bruschetta Salad.  It is the perfect combination of tomato, basil, mozzarella, and baguette.  This is a easy recipe and a refreshing salad option that is full of flavor.

During the summer months there are so many fresh tomatoes, herbs and other vegetables available for us to create our favorite salads.  I started thinking that turning Bruschetta into salad form would be the perfect summer salad option and a great way to use a bunch of your summer tomatoes. 

Bruschetta Salad is a great side salad to take to any barbeque, potluck or just about any get together you might have.  I promise it will be a hit and people will love it and ask you to share your recipe.

What are your favorite summer recipes that you make?  I love easy recipes that I can make quick when we are busy.  This recipe really fits that.

    This looks delicious. I’m just excited to see how you made the croutons. LOL.
    We are so tired of the basic salad around here and this could put a new twist in things. How long will this keep before the bread turns soggy? or is this something you have to make and eat same day? Thanks for sharing.

    This looks delicious and relatively healthy! Have you thought about substituting croutons for the toasted baguette cubes? That would make the recipe even easier and quicker!
