Nothing makes a winter panzanella salad seem quite as of-the-season as fresh citrus. Add Dream Greens – which are always in season – and toasted crusty bread and you have a hearty salad that will satisfy everyone at your table. Pick colorful citrus fruits and some bright red additions – think tomato and pomegranate seeds for lots. This far-from-traditional Italian bread salad is substantial enough for a main dish – or add your favorite protein or some cooks chickpeas for extra protein.
