I love panzanella salads because they incorporate my favorite things -- fresh veggies, meats, cheeses and bread, all in one fabulous bowl! And this salad is particularly fabulous with it's tangy dressing, sliced salami and grilled veggies. Yum. This is the perfect side dish to your weeknight or weekend grilling!
