Peach Panzanella Salad

Peach Panzanella Salad

Peach Panzanella Salad is a fun twist on classic Panzanella. It’s a great way to use delicious in-season peaches. 

 

Panzanella is basically a bread salad. Which means I basically love it more than any other salad. It’s usually savory, with tomatoes and onions, and often other veggies. 

 

This version is a little sweeter, with fresh juicy peaches, and a slightly sweet and tart balsamic vinaigrette.

Techniques for the perfect Peach Panzanella Salad

 

  • Use peaches when they are in season. The peach is the star of this show, so you want delicious ripe peaches. 
  • Oh no! Burrata is hard to find, what can you do? Use cottage cheese. I’m sure a cheesemonger would be outraged at my idea that you can replace burrata with cottage cheese, but they are really similar. I do like burrata better, but I have used cottage cheese instead and it’s still amazing.
