I love a good salad.

But after eating salad for a meal, I’m often left in that “not quite satisfied” place that leads to heavy snacking two hours later.

The fix?

Serving salad on bread. It’s a cheap and easy way to make your salad more filling – and interesting.

Salad On Bread: The Bread

What kind of bread should you serve salad on? Here are some ideas:

  • Warm focaccia
  • Grilled baguette or French bread
  • Toasted pita bread
  • Crostini
  • Flatbread

No matter what bread you use, make sure it’s toasted or grilled with plenty of olive oil on top.

Bread gets a bad rap – and maybe you’re not looking to add any more bread into your diet.

In that case, save this idea for entertaining. Serving salad  on top of bread is a chic and budget-friendly idea. Your guests will gush!
