From the Test Kitchen

ORIGIN
Panzanella (or Italian bread salad)originated in Tuscany, where people made use of stale bread by soaking it in olive oil, then tossing it with fresh tomatoes and more for a vibrant, delicious salad.

INGREDIENT IN FOCUS
Prosciutto is an Italian dry-cured ham made from high quality pork legs—salt-cured to remove excess moisture, then dry-aged anywhere from 9 to 34 months. The combination of salt, air, and time is what gives prosciutto the rich flavor and buttery texture it’s prized for.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the lemon-caper mayo:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the lemon-caper mayo:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the baguettes. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the green beans; halve crosswise. Halve the tomatoes. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Pit and roughly chop the olives. In a large bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, sliced shallot, chopped olives, vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Tear the mozzarella into small pieces. Remove the plastic lining between the slices of prosciutto. Roughly chop the capers. In a bowl, combine the lemon purée, chopped capers, and mayonnaise. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems.

2 Make the croutons:

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the diced baguettes on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the Italian seasoning; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Toast in the oven 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from the oven.

Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the green beans are tender and the water has cooked off. Transfer to the bowl of marinated vegetables. Wipe out the pan.
