Bread, Olive Oil and Grapes
Ah, the memories of summer. When I was a child, my mother used to often interrupt our play to bring us snacks. She made bread once a week and on that day, she would slice a fresh loaf, spread it with a light brushing of olive oil and a tiny bit of salt. Then she would either slice grapes on top of it or bring the grapes to us in a small side dish.
I can't tell you what it is about this snack, but the three ingredients together are outstanding. It is a marriage of taste that explodes on your tastebuds.
To this day, I make myself this snack, even though it's never as good as my mom used to make.
But it's healthy and simple and quick. It's a wonderful taste of Italy that is sure to impress!
