    Oh this looks so good! Wish I had this for dinner tonight. I am hoping to find some farm grown asparagus this weekend. If so, this is on the menu for next week.

  31. I adore panzanella. The bread looks so crispy – heading over to check it out now 🙂

  32. Carolyn Jung says:

    Oh, I love traditional panzanella. So, one with pesto has got to be doubly good.

  33. I had a winter panzanella bookmarked for so long but kept forgetting to make it .. I’ll have to try a spring one instead!

  34. Christina says:

    Mmm, panzanella, my favorite salad. Nice twist with the pesto!

  35. What a vibrant salad! I’m loving all the ingredients in here, especially those homemade ciabatta croutons.

  36. Esi says:

    Love panzanella. The idea of tossing it with pesto is intriguing

  37. Katie says:

    Your salad makes me feel like spring is officially here. I’ve never thought about putting pesto in panzanella before, but I bet it would add some interesting flavors. Salads like these always make me wish I lived somewhere where I could have a vegetable garden.

  38. This is a genius take on panzenella. Love all this springyness!

  39. elly says:

    I LOVE panzanella and this version sounds awesome!

  40. This is making me hope the weather gets warm ASAP. I want to be eating this on my deck…right now!

  41. Chris says:

    I love bread salads, hard to believe my first one was just two years ago.

  42. Ginger says:

    my husband and toddler LOVED this. we used french bread instead of ciabatta, otherwise followed the recipe.

    though I love pesto and balsamic, I think it I was making it again just for me, I’d do one or the other (probably balsamic + a little olive oil). I’m not as crazy for the combination. (However, this is a non-issue because the 14 month old foodie/tyrant likes your recipe as-is! Ha)

    thanks for another good one

  43. That looks really fresh and springy.
