Since I made my first Panzanella Salad with roasted fennel & Heirloom tomatoes back in May 2012, my youngest has been asking me to make it again. It was one of her favorite salads; however, I try not to eat too much bread (especially when it comes to eating salads!).

Last week while I was grocery shopping, they had some day old bakery Multigrain bread for a fraction of what it would normally cost and I decided that I would experiment with another panzanella salad.

Ratatouille Panzanella Salad

For this version, I used the base recipe for my Roasted Vegetable Ratatouille recipe; especially since all of these vegetables are in abundance right now. I roasted garden fresh eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, garlic and tomatoes, mixed in the multigrain bread then gently tossed the salad with a light Lemon Chardonnay Vinaigrette.

This salad was wonderful and encompassed all of the flavors of a typical ratatouille. My family really enjoyed it and for me it was a toss up which version I liked best. ~Enjoy!
