To me, there is nothing like a delicious salad. When I find a salad recipe that I love, I make it over and over again. Fresh vegetables + a delicious dressing = heaven to me! I have been a big fan of panzanella salad for years. Ironically, I have shared 2 unique panzanella recipes (Pizza Panzanella Salad and Grilled Tofu Panzanella Salad) before ever sharing a recipe for a classic panzanella salad.

With the weather warming up, it is time to find all of the best produce and chop it up in a salad and top with homemade toasted garlic bread pieces. All of the veggies and croutons are drizzled in a homemade Italian style dressing. You won't be able to get enough.

Whenever my mom makes a panzanella salad, I seriously eat serving after serving until it is gone. It is my favorite! All of the fresh flavors combined are so great. I could not find fresh basil in 2 stores that I went to but found some fresh dill that gave the dish a delicious fresh flavor. Either fresh dill or basil would work! Also, if you have fresh garden tomatoes, definitely use those because they provide the best flavor.

This would be great eaten for lunch or dinner. If you do pack this salad in your lunch, keep the toasted garlic bread pieces separate and add them right before you eat. I love pairing my panzanella salad with a small sandwich such as the Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin Flatbread Pocket Sandwiches which come in a few snack varieties including the Angus Cheeseburgers, Chicken Melts and Gyro Sliders.

I just take them to work frozen and microwave when I get to work. Or if I am home, I toast them in the oven. They are great for a quick lunch. They are small enough that you can pair them with a salad and some fruit for lunch and it will not be too overly filling.

These sandwiches feature 100% angus beef, all-white meat chicken, all-natural sausage and real cheeses. My 2 1/2 year old enjoys picking these up on her own for a meal- I think she feels like a big girl because she gets her own whole sandwich. They make a perfect quick meal and are very tasty. They are available nationally at places such as Kroger, Costco, Sam's Club and more. Find out where to buy here and print your coupon to save money on Sandwich Bros. sandwiches today.
