Top Rated Panzanella Recipes

One of our favorite summer dishes, panzanella, the bread and tomato salad of Italy, is changed up here, just a bit and with respect, by adding a skewer-ful of grilled shrimp. To us, it makes the perfect light meal. Greet that unexpected combination with wines up to the task, showing good acidity, like these French bottles. -Joe Gray This recipe by Joe Gray was originally published in the Chicago Tribune.

Light and packed with flavor, this salad is perfect as a fresh starter or side for a spring dinner or when hosting guests.  The sweetness of the strawberry, tied in with the smooth avocado, and the acidity of the tomato makes for a mock bruschetta when tossed with the bread.
