Panzanella (Recipe)


✅ 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided (Kasadrinos **FREE Bottle**)

✅ 4 whole-grain bread slices, crusts removed, cut into pieces

✅ 16 ounces boneless, skinless, chicken breast (about 2 large breast halves)

✅ 2 cups artichoke hearts (frozen or fresh)

✅ 8 ounces small mozzarella cheese balls or cut into small pieces (optional)

✅ 8 cups spinach

✅ 1cup yellow cherry tomatoes, halved

✅ 1 cup red cherry tomatoes, halved

✅ 1 plum tomato, cut into wedges

✅ 1⁄2 red onion, very thinly sliced
✅ 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

✅ 1 table spoon capers, drained and rinsed

✅  1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar

✅ 2 garlic cloves, minced

✅ 1⁄2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

✅ 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt

✅ 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1️⃣ In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil until it shimmers.

2️⃣ Rub chicken with 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill both sides until just cooked through (160°F). Transfer to cutting board and let rest 10 minutes. Cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes.

Add the bread and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp and browned. Drain and cool the bread on paper towels.

3️⃣ In a large bowl, combine the cooled bread, yellow, red, spinach, artichokes, and plum tomatoes, red onion, basil, and capers.

4️⃣ In a small bowl, whisk the remaining 4 tablespoons of olive oil with the vinegar, garlic, mustard, sea salt, and pepper. Toss with the salad and serve.

COOKING TIP: Add sliced cucumbers, if you wish for additional crunch.
