Panzanella Salad

Panzanella Salad

Do you have a favorite salad? I have come to like some.Here is a thing,for my husband,salad without lettuce or green mix is not salad.For me,i will be more then happy to have salad with no lettuce/green mix .You are thinking,then what is left in it? Don’t get me wrong,i have come to adapt lettuce and actually even enjoy it.Olive garden salad and soup anyone?

I used 1/4 cup lemon juice instead of 1/2 cup of lime juice as the recipe calls for.I like the hint of lemon but not too much. To make it gluten free, eliminate the graham crackers and use nuts and almonds,ground for crust. One piece of advice,make it night before, not 2 hours before you have to leave.You will save yourself last minute jitters.Just saying. Variation  On my son’s birthday,he...
