From the Test Kitchen

Panzanella is a traditional Tuscan bread salad enjoyed in summer months. We’re achieving the salad’s classic rustic texture by toasting a diced baguette in the oven, then dressing it in a bit of vinegar and olive oil—along with sautéed summer squash and poblano pepper. Tossed with juicy grapes, a cool weather favorite just coming into season, the salad is a bright complement for slices of roasted pork dolloped with a briny caper and parsley salsa verde.

Sear & roast the pork:
1 Sear & roast the pork:

Remove the pork from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork and cook, turning occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned. Turn off the heat. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan on the stove, transfer to the prepared sheet pan. Roast 14 to 16 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through. (An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.) Remove from the oven. Transfer the roasted pork to a cutting board and let rest for at least 5 minutes.

Finely chop the parsley leaves and stems. Roughly chop the capers. Peel and finely chop the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester).
