    Loved the combination of the mint with tomatoes. But preferred the bread chunks toasted.

    does anyone have a recommendation for a nice substitute for the olives? i was thinking mushrooms but don't think that would go with the mint.

    Great salad that's made even better with some shaved aged provolone and toasting the bread pieces very lightly.

    I was skeptical about the mint, but it really went well with the olives and lemon juice. I used grape tomatoes mixed with a whole tomato and it was really fresh tasting. Mine also sat out longer than 1/2 hour while we played badminton and it was really fresh tasting and delicous.
