Welcome to Drizzle Olive Oil and Vinegar Tasting Room



Panzanella Salad with Mozzarella Fresca

Posted by Dana Driscoll on

Salad

1 sweet or sour baguette  (torn in to pieces)
2 pounds sweet, juicy heirloom tomatoes, diced 1"
1/2 cup pitted olives, 
1/2 cup torn basil leaves
1/4 cup torn flat leaf parsley leaves
8 oz. mozzarella fresca 
1/4 cup freshly grated Pecorino
 2 tablespoons Drizzle Basil Olive Oil

Dressing
1/3 cup Drizzle Basil Olive Oil
3 tablespoons Drizzle Oregano White Balsamic
1 teaspoon flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves super finely minced
fresh ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt

Preheat the grill or your broiler.  Toss the torn bread with Basil Olive Oil, and either grill it until nicely browned on the edges and crisp, or place on a sheet pan and broil until well toasted.

Arrange the bread on a nice platter or in a large bowl. 

Make the dressing by whisking all the ingredients together well in a large bowl.  Add the cut tomatoes and gently toss with the dressing.  Spoon the tomatoes and their juice mixed with the dressing lovingly over the top of the toasted bread.

Scatter the mozzarella, olives, parsley, and basil leaves over the top of the tomatoes.  Just before serving top with grated Pecorino and fresh ground pepper to taste.  Serve immediately while the bread still has a bit of crunch.  

Serves 6-8
