SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Mediterranean Mosaic Salad & Grilled Baguette

This is one of our latest creations. Marinated three color tomatoes, butter beans, red wine/raspberry vinaigrette and grilled baguette slices. I love giving guests the ability to make the food their own. What we have here is a do it yourself bruschetta bar. The colors and presentation are fantastic but the flavor is what sells this dish.
