Panzanella salad gets a spring twist in this bright and refreshing pesto variation.
Add a fresh, aromatic taste to this recipe by using our basil pesto extra virgin olive oil.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Toss cubed bread in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of Zucchi Pesto Flavored Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Toast in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes, turning over halfway through, until golden brown and crisp on both sides. Sprinkle with salt.
Add cucumber and sugar snap peas to a large bowl.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons of Zucchi Pesto EVOO. Add asparagus to a skillet and increase heat to medium-high. Season with salt. Cook, tossing occasionally until lightly blistered but still green and crisp.
Add toasted bread, blistered asparagus, mozzarella balls, and torn basil leaves to the cucumber and sugar snap peas.
Drizzle with Zucchi Pesto EVOO and balsamic vinegar. Toss together, then taste and season with salt as needed.
Divide and serve in shallow bowls.
