Garden to Table: Summer Panzanella Salad
My peppers are finally growing and starting to turn a pretty red color. I don’t have a whole lot of peppers to harvest but I do have enough peppers to add some pretty red color to a dish.
Since it is summer and I’m in the mood for cool, refreshing salads, I decided to make a quick panzanella salad with the peppers I harvested. In addition to the peppers, I also harvested some basil leaves from my garden. I also had cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions at home. I just chopped all of these ingredients up and added garlic, capers, olive oil, white wine vinegar, and salt/pepper. To make it a panzanella (with bread) salad, I just used some ready-made croutons I had sitting on my counter. Since I had some fresh mozzarella cheese, I sliced that up and added that to my salad too. So quick and easy and delicious!
