Grilled Panzanella Salad
Stale bread is the traditional foundation of this summery salad. But who wants to wait around for bread to go stale?
Why This Recipe Works
For a fresh take on this classic bread salad, we make a flavor-packed dressing of extra-virgin olive oil, garlic, vinegar, briny capers, and Dijon mustard. We brush red onion, red bell pepper, and zucchini (each cut into fairly large pieces for easy grilling) with a garlic oil and grill the vegetables until tender and well charred. We grill thick slices of bread, cut everything into bite-size chunks, and toss the grilled vegetables and bread with a fresh contrast of cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and fresh basil.
