Grilled bread salad with sweet peppers and onions

A grilled bread salad might sound sort of dry, but this dish had the perfect amount of dressing. It was so easy to make, too! The hardest part was remembering what I had to pick up from the grocery store.

Classic panzanella

I discovered my love of panzanella last year when I made a panzanella salad with heirloom tomatoes and pickled red onions. There’s something about the soft toast with charred flavor and fresh vegetables that’s so appealing. This time I used Tuscan bread and cucumbers and stuck with hearty beefsteak tomatoes.

To bulk up the number of servings in this recipe, serve the panzanella over arugula or a mix of greens.

  • 4 cups day-old bread, cut into 1-inch cubes and broiled until brown (I used a roasted garlic loaf.)
  • 3 medium heirloom tomatoes
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup pickled red onions
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed basil, torn
  • 6 mint leaves, torn
  • 12 kalamata olives, sliced
  • salt and pepper

Place the toasted bread cubes in a large mixing bowl. Roughly chop the tomatoes on a cutting board and add both the tomatoes and the juice to the bowl of bread. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and vinegar. Pour the mixture over the bread as well. Thoroughly toss to combine, and set aside, letting the bread soak for about 20 minutes.

When the croutons are soft but not mushy, gently mix in the pickled onions, basil, mint and olives. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Stored in an airtight container, the salad holds for 1day in the fridge.

Makes 4 servings.
