Why You’ll Love this Winter Panzanella Salad

This beautiful citrus Panzanella salad is a bright and beautiful salad to serve in the winter. It’s hearty enough to be a main course, but it also makes a wonderful side salad for roast chicken or pasta.

Panzanella is typically an Italian summer salad with onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and soaked stale bread. It’s similar to the Lebanese salad fattoush.

If you like dipping bread in olive oil and balsamic vinegar then you are going to like the main ingredients in this salad!

In order to make this salad you’ll need:

  • 3 cups stale bread, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 Cara Cara oranges, peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups arugula
  • juice of one lemon
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

How to Make Panzanella Salad

This salad is very easy to make! All you have to do is add all the ingredients to a large bowl and toss to combine.

Allow salad to sit for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, so the bread can soak up some olive oil.

Then serve and enjoy!

Tips for this Cara Cara Orange Panzanella

  • Once you add the bread, there’s no going back (it gets saturated quickly), so don’t add it until you are 10 to 15 minutes away from serving.
  • If you can’t find cara cara oranges, just swap for another kind of citrus. I made this with blood oranges as well and it’s equally great!
