    Summer Panzanella

    Chock full of summer peaches and tomatoes, this Summer Panzanella is a match made in heaven and ready for your next summer party. This bright, refreshing, and satisfying recipe has been slightly adapted from Sarah Waldman.  Since starting on this food photography, recipe development, and blogging journey, I’ve had my fair share of doubts and insecurities.
