5-ingredient panzanella with nectarines and halloumi

Based on 11 ratings

"I make panzanella salad in a zillion different variations all through summer. It’s my choice when I have stale bread at home and some summer fruit like juicy nectarines, ripe peaches, or even melon. I usually use halloumi like in this recipe, because it tastes even better when it’s golden brown and crispy, but sometimes I’ll shred fresh mozzarella over the salad instead. This perfect summer salad can be rounded off with fresh basil or even (fresh or dried) oregano, if you have it. Sometimes I also add some finely sliced red onion or chopped pistachios or other nuts for that final touch. What can’t be missing? drizzles of olive oil and honey over the finished plate! Make it your own and enjoy!"
