Meati™ Grilled Cutlet Panzanella

This meal is simple with flavors and ingredients evocative of summer. The bread salad is a great way to use up leftover, stale sourdough bread making it a sustainable choice that’s both restaurant-worthy and economical for a mid-day meal. Grilling or toasting the bread with olive oil in advance is optional but it brings forth the flavors of the outdoors to your plate with little effort. This recipe takes advantage of fresh summer tomatoes and their juices which soak into the bread while providing great flavor. It’s perfectly paired with Grilled Meati™ naked cutlet that’s been marinated in the same dressing as the bread salad.
