This recipe for Panzanella Salad with bagels and heirloom tomatoes is a flavorful side dish inspired in the Italian cuisine. This is one of my favorite dishes to use leftover bread and fresh tomatoes. Each bite of this salad is a delight. Between the crunch of the toasted bread, the citrusy flavor of the preserved lemon and the tenderness of a heirloom tomato makes it the perfect side dish for spring and summer.
This panzanella salad with toasted everything bagels is without a doubt a delicious side dish that could also become a main dish when paired with a comforting soup or adding a portion of your favorite grilled meat, chicken or fish to make a complete meal.
