BRUSCHETTA SALAD

BRUSCHETTA SALAD
BRUSCHETTA SALAD

Here at BOSH! HQ we are desperately holding on to the final strands of this delightful, sunny summer season 🌞 Whilst we enjoy the last few weeks of warmth we’ve been making some delicious summery recipes too! This one’s a real treat - Bruschetta Salad! Basically deconstructed bruschetta, in a bowl. And who doesn’t like bruschetta?! Sweet tangy balsamic & tomato flavours combined with perfectly grilled Italian bread = yummo. The croutons in this salad are to die for and the whole dish is delightfully colourful and fresh. It would go great as a side to a BBQ, or makes for a delicious light lunch! Who said salads have to be boring? 🥗
