Bread Salad with Chili Lemon Dressing

lemon chili bread salad

Lately, I have been savoring the weekends. In addition to gardening and enjoying time with friends, I have been cooking. I tried new, easy and healthy dishes like Bread Salad with Lemon Chili Vinaigrette to try and make up for serving up all those treats I to you last month.

Today at 5 I will start a week’s vacation and I am counting down the moments. I get to play around the house, garden a bit more and spend time with these people. Of course Max will be happy to have me home too! The best part is I am going here.

I have heard great things about the Ojai Spa and look forward to tasting their spa cuisine. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

Inspired by a recipe by Donna Hay this is a simple take on a bread salad using arugula and instead of croutons, toasting thin slices of french bread.
