From the Test Kitchen

Panzanella is a traditional Tuscan salad popular in the summer. Here, we’re adapting the dish to highlight hearty, seasonal vegetables: crisp fennel and heirloom cauliflower, which we’re roasting to bring out its mellow sweetness. (Though green cauliflower is pictured, depending on what’s fresh near you, yours may be orange or purple.) We’re rounding out the salad with oven-toasted croutons, briny olives and Piave cheese­—all tossed with a creamy lemon dressing.
