Peach Panzanella Salad

We love our peaches around here, and this is one thing you need to make this weekend! Panzanella originated in Italy as a way to use up stale bread. I love that it minimizes food waste and am all for adding bread to just about anything. This is my spin on it and our family couldn’t stop eating it. It’s quick, easy, and the perfect balance of sweet and savory. The combination of sweet peaches and tomatoes with crunchy cucumbers and creamy burrata is SO delicious. It’s a great dish if you’re in the mood for something light and the best part is, you can’t mess it up. Like all of the most delicious dishes, simple, high-quality ingredients are key. See exactly how I make this salad in this video. Enjoy!

What You'll Need:

+ 4 cups stale bread, 1” cubes

+ 3 peaches, cubed

+ 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

+ 2-3 mini cucumbers, diced

+ 1/2 red onion, sliced

+ 4 tbsp. EVOO

+ 3 tbsp. red wine vinegar

+ Salt and pepper to taste

+ 2 large sprigs mint leaves, torn

+ Optional: add the smallest pinch of sugar


1. Optional: I like to drizzle the cubes of bread with some EVOO and toast until golden brown and crispy.

2. Cut the peaches, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onion.

3. Tip: the key is to salt the tomatoes in a bowl and let sit for at least 10 minutes to extract the juices that acts as part of the dressing.

4. Combine all ingredients except the bread and make your dressing directly in the bowl.

5. Then add bread, toss thoroughly, and serve with burrata.

6. Tip: make sure your peaches and tomatoes are ripe, otherwise it won’t be as juicy or sweet. Enjoy!
