What I Ate: Grilled Panzanella Salad

P is for panzanella. Panzanella is a stale bread salad, typically made with tomatoes and cucumbers. Little fun fact: panzanella salad was originally made with onion. It wasn't until the 20th century that we all started to worry about having stinky breath and switched over to less offensive tomatoes.

Panzanella can be pretty much whatever you want it to be. I made mine with grilled vegetables and a lemon basil dressing. You can make yours with fresh crunchy vegetables and a balsamic vinaigrette.
And don't look for a special occasion to make this salad. Just make it some time in the summer when the fridge is stocked with delicious veggies and you've got a stale loaf sitting on the counter, looking sad and pitiful.
