15 mins
Heat stove-top grill. Brush bread with olive oil, sprinkle with salt. Grill for 5-8 minutes on each side, until nicely browned.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk vinaigrette ingredients together.

In a large bowl, mix the tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, red onion, basil, and capers. Toss with enough vinaigrette to moisten. Season liberally with salt and pepper and arrange the vegetables on a platter.

Drizzle the bread with remaining vinaigrette and add to the platter. Serve immediately or allow the salad to sit for about 1/2 hour for the flavors to blend.

"This is the salad you need to make! I cubed the bread and baked in the oven to crisp since I like the bread mixed in with the salad on a panzanella. It doesn't keep as well this way thought, but no worries since there won't be any leftover!"
