    Recipe courtesy Brian Boitano 2009--Show: What Would Brian Boitano Make?Episode: Handyman Special. Brian was a skating Olymipic champion who loves to cook and now has his own show. He served this to get into a supper club. What a hoot to watch Brian make his dishes. This one caught my eye!

      Wonderful! Everyone in my family liked different parts the best DH, the croutons, DS the cheese, DD the whole thing. Very good - just the right amount of flavor and spices. Will be making again. We did leave out the olives - nobody here is a big fan. Thanks for sharing Sharon! Made for Top Favorites of 2009 Tag Game.

      Oh Sharon ~ this salad is divine! It's so simple to make and the flavors are just wonderful. I made as posted except I left my olives whole. I used regular mozzarella that I cubed. I would recommend using a good olive oil. Thank you for posting a keeper that I'll make often!

      This is very yummy. I loved the bread cubes in the garlic butter/oil. So tasty. I used baby bocconcini, maybe mozzarella would have been better. This is a very yummy salad that I'll do again but with another cheese. Thanks Sharon :) Made for TYM tag game
