Italian Panzanella Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by BecR2400

Big cubes of bread in this traditional Italian salad soak up the zesty dressing; white beans and provolone pump up the protein for a well-balanced vegetarian meal. From Martha Stewart.

We loved this substantial salad! Even my husband, who prefers bleu cheese dressing, liked the vinaigrette. I couldn't get to the store, but this salad survived substituting green pepper & scallions for the cucumber and American cheese for the provolone. A great way to use up stale bread, but you can bet that next time I will make it exactly as written. :)
