When it comes to warm-weather vegetables, vivid colors often mean amazing taste. That’s true of the vegetables in this summer panzanella, served alongside seared salmon fillets. A traditional Tuscan salad made with crispy bread, panzanella is designed to feature the best produce on the market. Our version combines corn, plum tomatoes and an heirloom cucumber, as well as two specialty ingredients: shishito peppers and Thai basil. Shishitos are sweet and generally mild, but about one in every ten is hot (so be careful)! Thai basil is a cooling, anise-like variety of the herb that perfectly completes the salad.
