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.Panzanella Salad is full of flavor with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, red onion, dill, garlic French bread croutons and a homemade Italian dressing! www.nutritionistreviews.com
