Panzanella Salad is one of my favorite things to make with bread! it’s quick, light and the ingredients can be easily adapted to seasonally produce available at the farmers market.

Panzanella Salad:

– fresh salad greens & herbs
– seasonal veggies
– sourdough bread
– butter
– salt/pepper
– olive oil
– balsamic reduction

1. Wash and prepare vegetables and salad greens. For this recipe I used local tomatoes grown by my neighbor, lettuce from Mahele farm, arugula and basil from my own garden, and sweet peppers.

2. Cut bread into cubes, toss in oil/fat of choice. Melted butter from Naked Cow Dairy is a great choice. Season with herbs, salt, and pepper.

3. Heat a pan over medium heat and toast bread cubes. Stir occasionally until golden brown and crunchy.

4. Top prepared salad and veggie mix with warm bread, drizzle with salad dressing of choice and enjoy. For my plate I used balsamic reduction and olive oil.
