Panzanella Salad is great for a light, but filling summer salad

1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons of capers, one small red onion sliced
1 clove of garlic minced
1 bunch of basil leaves shredded.
4 Brandywine tomatoes cut into wedges

In a large bowl mix together the first 5 ingredients and gently mix into the bowl. Mix in the toasted pieces of bread and season with more sea salt and pepper if desired. Best if left to sit for a half hour before serving

3 ears of cooked corn
1 lb green beans lightly cooked
3 Cherokee Purple Heirloom tomatoes
4 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 cloves of garlic minced
