Sweet Roast Pepper & Chickpea Panzanella Salad

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 adds 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

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.
