Just another quick and easy side dish that goes well with my roasted chicken recipe I shared earlier. Here is the link to the Roasted Chicken recipe.

Roast Chicken with Bread Salad

Although this is a recipe that has been inspired by Food & Wine Annual 2015 Cookbook, there are many variations I can come up with. For example, the recipe has red wine vinegar, and if not available, it can easily be substituted with sherry vinegar, a fruity and pleasant taste. Two other ingredients on the list are peasant bread and Kirby cucumbers.

It is not necessary to use peasant bread. Any 1-day old crusty bread you like will do. As far as Kirby cucumbers, that all depends on your budget, but regular cucumbers or English cucumbers will work as well.
