Pepper & Kale Panzanella Salad is a light yet filling salad loaded with homemade bread cubes, sauteed pepper & kale, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, pickled onions and basil.
Panzanella salad is by far my favorite kind of salad. I like to make homemade croutons when making panzanella, it only takes a few minutes and makes a huge difference in the salad. I like to use a hearty bread like sourdough, or a multi-grain bread, cut it into cubes and then saute the cubes in olive oil over medium high heat for a few minutes.
I saute the peppers and kale for this salad. Sauteing the peppers brings out the sweetness in them while sauteing the kale softens it. Add to the peppers & kale some sweet cherry tomatoes, salty feta cheese, pickled onions and basil and you have a great base for this salad. Add to salad a greek yogurt based dressing with vinegar and honey and you have a very tasty panzanella salad that you will fall in love with.
