Green Tomato, Scallion and Corn Bread Panzanella

For this riff on an Italian bread salad, try using day-old corn bread, which soaks up the dressing really well. Look for corn bread that's not too sweet.

Ingredients

  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  3. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. Hot sauce
  5. 2 large green tomatoes (6 to 8 ounces each), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  6. 1 medium green bell pepper, finely diced
  7. 1/2 cup coarsely shredded basil leaves
  8. 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  9. One 5-inch square of store-bought corn bread, cut into 3/4-inch cubes (4 cups)
  1. In a large salad bowl, combine the olive oil and vinegar; season with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Add the green tomatoes, green pepper, basil and scallions and toss. Just before serving, add the corn bread and toss gently.

Suggested Pairing

A light-style Sauvignon Blanc is tailor-made for the equally tart and herbal flavors of the tomatoes, green peppers and scallions in this corn bread panzanella. Try one from the Marlborough region of New Zealand.
