Za'atar Spiced Bread Salad

Za'atar Spiced Bread Salad

Bread Salad: Salad made of bread.

Can you understand why I'm so excited about this recipe? I know everyone is different but when I think "salad" I generally think of a healthy, green side dish I eat because I know it's good for me. Pairing the word "salad" with the word "bread" just changes everything for the better. And yes, it is a real thing!

The bread salad is made up of a crusty sesame bread, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, chickpeas and some red onions. It's all tossed with a delicious (but simple!) dressing. To make things extra exciting, I added some za'atar to the dressing. Za'atar is a Middle Eastern spice mixture - mine is made up of thyme, sumac and sesame seeds. After making the salad, you will place it in the fridge for at least an hour. In that hour the bread will soak up that dressing and some of the tomato juice and it will be absolutely delicious. In terms of serving, I ate it along with pita and hummus while my husband (non-vegetarian that he is) ate it with some salmon. 

In other news, we moved!!! I am thrilled the packing is over but now there's so much to unpack. I can't wait to photograph with all my fun props instead of the handful of dishes I have been working with these past weeks. Thanks for hanging in there everyone!
