Villagers salad in a bread cone


I’m so pleased to introduce the Bread Kone. It’s a delicious savory bread that’s baked into the shape of a cone and flavored with sesame seeds. It’s ideal for sandwiches, salads, and even interesting desserts! In the coming months I’m going to share many ways you can use a bread kone in your kitchen. It is the perfect way to give salads and sandwiches a fresh twist. Also, the cone shape makes it easy to eat and ensures nothing will drip into your lap, no matter how much sauce you use

There are many delicious salads in Mediterranean cuisine. Typically, they’re served with bread on the side, but in this case we’re using the bread to hold the salad. Stuff bread kones with delicious salads is always a good idea.

The dressing won’t drip out of the kone, you don’t need to grill up bread for the side, and everyone loves that’s a whole meal in one bite. There are many salads you could add to his bread kone, don’t hesitate to try using the bread kone to hold your favorite.
