Trying to choose a name for this salad I did some online research in an attempt to discover what a ‘classic’ Panzanella salad consists of. Some included mozzarella, some not. Some had cucumber and some had olives. I don’t have complete clarity on the issue, but with all things in cooking, just trust your instincts and make what you like.
My version is a chopped up Caprese salad mixed with golden chunks of fried bread, finely sliced red onions, and its utterly delicious.
This sort of salad is my ultimate kind of lunch. I could probably eat it every day and never get bored. The flavours are bold and marry so perfectly with each other. Its summer on a plate and party in your mouth.
