We eat at a little catering company about once a week. For the last couple weeks or so, they have had a bruschetta salad that I love. Well, I had to make it at home and this is the recipe I found.
Romaine lettuce, chopped - 4-6 ribs (I use whatever lettuce I have, arugula, mesclun, red leaf) Fresh mozzarella, diced - 3 ounces (I buy the little balls and split them in half) Roma tomatoes, sliced - 2 each (I use split cherry tomatoes) Basil vinaigrette (see below) - about 3 ounces
Ciabatta, split, drizzled with olive oil, and grill on the grill or in a grill pan
Fresh basil, chopped - 8 leaves Olive oil - 3 tablespoons Red wine vinegar - ½ tablespoon Balsamic vinegar - 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard - ½ teaspoon Garlic, chopped - 1 clove Crushed red pepper - a pinch Salt and pepper - to taste
I whisk the dressing in the bottom of a bowl, pile the ingredients on top, them toss. I garnish with more basil. It can even sit a bit. I suppose you could add red onion, red peppers - roasted or not, cucumbers, whatever.
