I saw a recipe for spicy basil-beef salad in Cooking Light and thought, Hmmm… I need to renovate that. This is different enough, in both method and meatless, that I’ll say it’s “inspired by” their recipe. Fresh and tasty, perfect for a hot summer’s Meatless Monday.
Since I love black-eyed peas and salads of all kinds, I was instantly drawn to this Cooking Light recipe, which blends Mediterranean and Southern U.S. ingredients. I have never made a bread salad, called panzanella in Italy, so I was interested to see how my gluten-free bread would work. One word: Yum.
