Panzanella is a traditional Tuscan bread salad and this bread salad borrows from the traditional Provençal dish of ratatouille to meld the two together for a fabulous summer salad. It is a hearty and delicious side dish that goes well with grilled chicken or fish and is even better if made ahead and made with slightly stale french bread. Grill red and yellow peppers, eggplant, zucchini, onions and cherry tomatoes. Slice the french bread and brush it with some olive oil and grilled each side and then cut it in cubes. I made a fresh herbal vinaigrette with basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano and a pinch of fresh lavender and tossed it all together for a wonderful salad. Click here for the recipe….
