Grilled Peach Panzanella Salad (1)Dunno bout you guys, but I’m a huge fan of this Grilled Peach Panzanella Salad. It’s like a salad on bread steroids. If that were actually a thing.

It should be.

If you aren’t familiar, a panzanella is a type of Tuscan salad that is famously made with bread soaked in dressing as a base instead of lettuce. For my particular grilled peach panzanella salad, I actually baked the bread for a few minutes with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt, and finished the salad with a balsamic vinaigrette. A traditional panzanella would be reversed.

Anyway, this panzanella salad comes together with the quickness, because you quick-grill the peaches while the bread crisps in the oven, and the rest is just tossed together wham bam thank you ma’am. To me, this salad is perfect for lunch all by itself, or with a simple chicken dinner. Light, and refreshing.

Author: Karly Gomez


  • 1 Stale Baguette roughly torn
  • C Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 6 Peaches stones removed and sliced
  • 1 ½ C Grape Tomatoes halved
  • 2 C Arugula
  • ½ C Fresh Basil sliced into thin strips
  • ½ C Almonds
  • ¾ C Goat Cheese crumbled


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, toss together the torn baguette, olive oil, and salt until thoroughly combined. Dump the bread onto a cookie sheet and bake until crisp, around 7 minutes.

  • Heat a grill pan over high heat and spray down with cooking spray. When hot, add the peach slices and allow to char for about 2 minutes per side, then remove from heat and dice into large chunks.

  • In a large serving bowl, add the bread, peaches, tomatoes, arugula, basil, almonds and goat cheese and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately with a dressing of choice.


I recommend finishing the salad with a balsamic vinaigrette to get the best flavor combo.
