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.

  • 1 Rye Bread Boule
  • 2 Ounces Arugula

Quarter and deseed the lemon. Cut off and discard any fennel stems. Halve the fennel bulb lengthwise; cut out and discard the core, then thinly slice the bulb crosswise. Pick the parsley leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Cut off and discard the rind of the cheese; break the cheese into small pieces. Using the flat side of your knife, smash the olives; remove and discard the pits, then roughly chop the olives.
