A simple but absolutely delicious summery panzanella salad with sweet roast peppers and chickpeas.

It’s one of my favourite salads and a brilliant way of using up slightly stale bread–which I always seem to have. I love the way the crunchy/ chewy sourdough soaks up the dressing and pepper juices.

You can add in loads of leaves if you like to make it more leaf based, but I like to keep with quite chunky with just a handful of leaves and lots of fresh basil.

Great served with crispy roast baby potatoes, and my griddled courgette with puy lentils (and a nice chilled glass of wine).

Enjoy xx
