Summery Panzanella Salad

Necessity is the mother of invention, and this classic Italian dish comes out of the need to use up stale bread. Originating in Tuscany, panzanella traditionally combines cubed stale bread with juicy tomatoes, vinegar, olive oil, and sometimes onions and basil. This summery version of the original celebrates the flavors of summer, and features sweet corn, caramelized red onions, and creamy mozzarella for a dish that’s sure to please. Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which helps protect your eyes and skin from the sun- all the more reason to enjoy them in the summer months.
