Panzanella is a classic Tuscan salad that casually throws together veggies with soft and crunchy bread. We love any excuse to toast up croutons, the perfect delivery vehicle for our creamy apple cider and sour cream dressing! Instead of the typical tomatoes, you’ll toss said croutons with beets and apple, along with toasted pecans, mint and feta cheese. Then enjoy this veg-packed Mediterranean-style meal for a little sunshine on the inside.

  • 1 Shallot (or onion)

Boil the beets
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Peel and medium-dice the beets. Pick the mint leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves. Add the beets to the pot of boiling water and boil, 15 to 20 min., until tender. Drain and rinse under cold water. Once cool, transfer to a bowl. Add ½ the mint, a drizzle of olive oil and S&P; toss well.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, core and cut the apple into matchsticks (or small-dice); toss with a splash of the vinegar to prevent browning. Halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Medium-dice the ciabatta.
