Summer Peach, Tomato, and Cornbread Panzanella Salad
Summer is here and so is the hot sweltering temperatures associated with the season. The last thing I want to do when the weather is this warm is turn on the oven to cook something in the heat of the day. While I love to cook, I tend to go for no-cook recipes like salads and sandwiches during the summer.
This Summer Peach and Cornbread Panzanella Salad is the perfect summer dish to take to a BBQ or eat at home with a protein. This recipe includes all of my favorite summer foods and flavors. In my mind, this is what summer should taste like.
