Nature's Pride Panzanella

I have been having quite the good time coming up with recipes for my Nature’s Pride bread. With a carton of fresh heirloom tomatoes from Trader Joe’s, a panzanella salad was the obvious choice for a light dinner on Sunday evening.

1) Chop 3 large heirloom tomatoes into large chunks

2) Finely dice 3 cloves of garlic, begin sautéing in extra virgin olive oil, and place two slices of Nature’s Pride 100% whole wheat bread in the sizzling oil. Brown on both sides, then lower the temperature in the pan to keep the bread warm but the garlic from burning.  


3) While the bread is warming, chop about 1/4 of a Bermuda onion into fine slivers.


4) Assemble the tomatoes, bread, and onions in a bowl, and sprinkle with a cheese of your choice. Ours was gorgonzola dolce. Drizzle the assembled salad with olive oil and red wine vinegar, and enjoy!  


Do you like things like bread and cheese in salads, or are you more of a traditional lettuce and tomato type of salad eater? I like both, but since I do make and eat a lot of salads, I like to mix it up with lots of different ingredients! Hope you are having a fantastic, food and rest filled long weekend!

    Lovely post! Another WINNER IMHO… You are so lucky you had two chances at a scholarship to the FB Festival… The NP contest was only open to domestic FPs… Fingers still crossed for Bertolli though…
