Notes from the Test Kitchen:

Wow! That was all we could say when we first tried this delectable dessert "salad." The brown sugar coated bread cubes are like perfectly sweetened, toasty croutons. Coupled with the fresh strawberries you've got one out-of-this-world, kid-friendly treat!

day old bread cubed (preferably italian or a rustic sturdy loaf)
1 lb
fresh strawberries
1 c
greek yogurt (plain)
4 sprig(s)
1 c
packed brown sugar (split into 1/2 cup servings)
4-6 Tbsp
melted butter
1 tsp

Made this last evening for company. While it was delicious and made a pretty presentation, I find that the berries should not be mixed until just before serving. The berries and bread were soft but the taste of the butter/sugar in the bread cubes was yummy. I will definitely make it again.

Can't wait to make this. I think fresh peaches in season might also be good.
