Grilled Panzanella Salad


         Salad just can't get any better than this...in my humble opinion. Bread, grilled
         veggies, cheese, meat and dressing. I'd say that it is one flavor explosion in
         your mouth. So good! Make this tonight, make this right now!! It does not at
         all when you make it. Just make it soon.

                                                   Grilled Panzanella Salad
 
        2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing and drizzling
        2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
        2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
        1 small garlic clove, minced
        salt and pepper
        1 red onion, big dice
        3 medium plum tomatoes, halved
        6 scallions
        2 large bell peppers, any color
        1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise
        1 10oz ciabatta, halved lengthwise
        1/2 cup torn fresh herbs, basil, mint or parsley
        1/4 pound thinly sliced salami, cut into ribbons
        1/4 pound provolone cheese, cut into ribbons

    1) Preheat a grill pan to medium high. Make the dressing. Whisk the olive oil, vinegar
    lemon juice, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste in a bowl.
    2) Brush the grill with olive oil. Put the tomatoes in a large bowl and drizzle with olive
    oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill cut side down until slightly charred, about 2
    minutes. Transfer to baking sheet.
    3) Put the scallions, peppers and zucchini in the same bowl, drizzle with olive oil and
    season with salt and pepper. Brush bread with olive oil. Grill bread and veggies until
    charred, about 2 minutes per side for the bread and scallions and 4 minutes per side
    for peppers and zucchini. Transfer to baking sheet and let cool.
    4) Cut the scallions, peppers, onion, zucchini, tomatoes and bread into bite size.
    Transfer to bowl. Add the herbs, salami, cheese, dressing and any juices from the
    baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.
     If you don't have a grill you can still enjoy this by doing all the work on the stovetop.
