Craving a salad with robust flavor? Try this zesty combo of fresh cucumbers, red onions, cherry tomatoes, and kalamata olives mixed with our tasty sausage patties, bread cubes and tangy feta cheese. Add your favorite balsamic vinaigrette dressing and you have a hearty salad to serve along with a nice grilled steak.

Italian Bread & Sausage Salad

Directions

  1. Into a large glass or ceramic serving bowl, place each of the lemon soaked onions slices, red & yellow bell peppers, tomato quarters, sliced cucumber pieces, chopped olives, and feta cheese cubes.
  2. Sprinkle the Swaggerty's Farm Sausage quarter cut patty pieces over the top.
  3. Drizzle over all the ingredients, about ½ cup of the balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
  4. Top salad with bread cubes and toss well. Make sure you coat all the vegetables and bread with some of the dressing. Add more dressing if desired.

Notes

If you want to make this salad ahead of time, make it through step #3, and place in the refrigerator loosely covered.
 
A hearty ciabatta bread will resist getting soggy, even mixed in the salad after a few days.
 

To Serve

When ready to serve, add bread cubes, toss well, and serve immediately.
