Summer Panzanella

July 20, 2020

Hands down this is my favorite salad. It’s fresh and easy and tastes like summer. Heres what I did:

I cut up 7 peaches, added blueberries and blackberries to a bowl, drizzled a bit of agave (or honey) and tossed all fruit together. Then I added 2 mozzarella balls, pulled apart and shredded. Next, cube baguettes into large pieces and sautee in an oiled pan. Let them toast on all sides, set aside and add next batch to toast. You want crispy edged, soft pillows of bread! Add salt and pepper and garlic powder to toasted crutons and toss into fruit. I added shredded mint and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.

It is so so good, with no end to the fruit and yumminess you can add. Sometimes I use goat cheese instead of mozzarella, or with melon chunks and crispy prosciutto, thin red onion or plums and strawberries, fresh thyme…I could go on and on. You get it. It is my favorite go to. The most important thing is that you get the crutons right. What doesn’t taste good with that!!
