Expert Tips

Panzanella is an Italian bread salad featuring chunks of bread tossed with tomatoes, onions, fresh basil and vinaigrette. For a southwestern variation, we’ve added bell pepper, chiles, cilantro and lime.

Prepare the bread, vegetables and dressing one day ahead. Store the toasted bread cubes in a resealable plastic bag at room temperature; refrigerate the dressing and vegetables. Just before serving, toss all salad ingredients together.

To add flavor and protein to this salad, toss in 1/2 cup of shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese.
