Quick Lemony Panzanella
A vegetable-forward alternative to garlic bread with a pasta dinner. This salad makes use of that delicious loaf of bread that's gone a little stale. Mr. Frilly does not like vinegary dressings so this salad gets its acid from some pickled banana pepper slices and a lemon, which pairs perfectly with the garlic and fresh herbs. I suggest serving with a crisp Pinot Grigio. If not serving immediately, stir every few minutes to make sure bread is soaking up those delicious juices. Serve at room temperature within a few hours. Leftovers can be refrigerated.
