I really enjoyed this which I made exact to the recipe, as always. However, while I was eating it, I knew it could be MUCH better with just one or two slight changes. First of all, with so few ingredients, those ingredients need to be best quality, and/or fresh! I'm making it again tonight, and I'm using home-grown Roma tomatoes & fresh Basil. Did you know that the more you cut from your basil plant the better it grows!!! Two, nix the Red-wine vinegar, & use Basalmic vinegar (the best grade you can find, 5 medallions or better. AND, use that bottle ONLY for this type of fresh presentation!). The last change I will make is a personal choice only, & that's because I really disliked the bagel chips. So, I'm making bread cubes using Chef John's method (see Chef John's Panzanella Salad for the technique to make bread cubes that don't get soggy!). So that's it, for me. Thanks Steph, for sharing a great salad, and Blessings!!!
