Pork Chops with Carrots, Wilted Spinach & Mustard Dressing

Pork Chops with Carrots, Wilted Spinach & Mustard Dressing

Juicy Panzanella – Tuscan Tomato & Bread Salad

Juicy Panzanella - Tuscan Tomato & Bread Salad

I don’t know if I could really call this juicy Panzanella a recipe, but it is definitely my favorite summer dish: fresh tomatoes, toasted bread, garlic, and fresh basil. The funny thing is that I’ve first tried mixing the ingredients into a proper salad on a moody and cold spring day, but Tuscany will always bring sun into your home, no matter the weather outside or your mood.
