My family has been on a bit of a salad strike – especially my son. He went from loving salad to HATING it. I thought I’d give a panzanella salad a try. No luck with him, but the rest of us loved this salad! It was so refreshing and bright. It’s simple to make and delicious! I loved the combination of sweet peaches with the saltiness of prosciutto and the creaminess of the fresh mozzarella. The vinaigrette is really good too – I’ll definitely make it again.
My husband is not a fan of fruit in salad, but I think I have may have converted him with this one! I can’t wait to make it again before local peaches are no longer available.
3 cups ciabatta bread, cubed
2 peaches, thinly sliced
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
4 slices prosciutto, halved
8 ounces fresh mozzarella ball, torn
basil leaves, chiffonade (about 1/4 cup)
Honey Dijon Vinaigrette
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
In a pint mason jar, combine all the vinaigrette ingredients. Cover with a lid and shake vigorously.
In a bowl or large plate, combine all the salad ingredients. Dress with vinaigrette right before you are ready to serve.
