Happy Spring! Enjoy Maria's Tuscan Salad!

Hi Everybody,

I had a blast with Bob Cowan at  my CHCH TV Morning Live segment to welcome Spring!  Bob helped toss my easy Tuscan Bread Salad.  My table display also compliments the vibrant Spring colors and wanted to kick start with fun on a cold, snowy day!  In Italian, “Marzo Pazzo” means mad March!  One day, it sunny and mild and the next, snow and cold.  My easy Mediterranean recipes will always bring sunshine in your cucina!

Tuscan Bread Salad (with Maria’s Rule Breaking Suggestions)!

5 cups of day old bread (use crusty bread or your favorite)
2 cups diced tomatoes (Greenhouse)
1 medium red onion (finely chopped)
1 cup (green/black olives)
1/2 cup capers
1/2 cup roasted garlic
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
salt/pepper to taste

Toss everything in the bowl and drizzle with your favorite extra virgin olive oil.  I featured one of my favorites (premium and fresh) available at www.oliveoilemporium.com.

You can have so much fun by making this as a main meal or a side.  Be creative, have fun and enjoy these Spring ideas with friends and family.

Here’s the link to the segment from CHCHTV 11. http://www.chch.com/morning-live-blog/item/12075-maria-filice

a presto,

Maria
