Panzanella Bread Salad

It’s the weekend—almost. It’s Friday and that is enough for me to raise a glass. Is it going to be one of those jam-packed weekends with tons to do or a lazy one? I think my weekend is going to be a mix, which is good because I’ve had too many super busy weekends since we moved. Whatever kind of weekend it is, I highly recommend finding a bit of time to make Panzanella Bread Salad.

It is a carbo-lover’s dream. ♥ Lately, I have been all too into my carbs. Like this pizza that I made (as seen on Instagram) on Wednesday. Ohhh and this huge Italian dinner I went to at John’s of 12th Street—an NYC institution (so I’ve heard). They serve some seriously good meatballs.

I can’t seem to get enough Italian food I guess—and this panzanella salad is no exception. The basics: It’s a traditional Tuscan salad made with stale bread soaked in tomatoes, olive oil, and includes other summer ingredients.

Soba Noodle Salad with Miso Dressing

When it is hot outside, I never want to eat a heavy meal. I made soba noodle salad with miso dressing other day and it was so light, cool, and refreshing. Flavorful umami dressing is tossed with delicate soba noodles and crunchy vegetables.

We are in the middle of summer and it seems like a heat wave has swept across the country. I was watching the weather on the news the other day and pretty much the whole country was red- meaning hot, very hot!


Black Bean and Corn Salad

This black bean and corn salad is always in my refrigerator during the summer. It is so simple to make and everyone loves it. Plus, it’s healthy for you.

Sometimes, I scoop some on a green salad for a light lunch or dinner. When it’s hot outside I never feel like eating anything heavy. I have also served this with tortilla chips for a barbecue party. And of course this salad is great by itself!
