Last, a bread salad. Aka. Panzanella. With an antipasti twist!
Enter: The Summer Vegetable Panzanella Salad.
We’re taking tons of veggies – I used zucchini, yellow squash, radishes, mushrooms, asparagus, and onion -, and marinating them with the flavored oil from DeLallo’s Roasted Pepper Bruschetta, some DeLallo Golden Balsamic Vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper.

It’s simple, filling, crunchy, and savory, and it celebrates the very best of summer produce.
