Panzanella Salad, Caprese-Style

Panzanella Caprese

We enjoy this “White Bean Panzanella Salad” from my America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Cookbook. It kind of reminds me of Caprese Salad, which features tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil. Caprese meet Panzanella. Panzanella, meet Caprese.  I added fresh mozzarella pearls to ATK’s Panzanella. The result is a fresh and substantial salad; it’s a meal in itself.
