Summer is officially over according to the calendar, yet it is still over 90 degrees here in the very hot and very humid south. Our tomato plants are still flourishing and our basil is looking better than ever. I thought it would be fun to celebrate the official end of summer with this super simple panzanella salad with all our goods from the garden!

I used a loaf of La Brea Bakery’s sundried tomato and herb bread, but anything with a little crunch will do. The bread is toasted and then soaks in a little olive oil and red wine vinegar before adding it to the salad to give it the perfect crunchy and flavorful bite! We used a pesto vinaigrette here, but any vinaigrette will do. I think balsamic would be great or even a light red wine would work!
