Ingredients

  • 1 loaf ciabatta bread, sliced to 1″ thickness
  • 1 cup olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 8 ounces halloumi cheese, sliced to 1″ thickness
  • 5 large ripe peaches, sliced to 1/2″ thickness
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Brush the ciabatta bread slices lightly with olive oil and season with salt. Set aside.
  3. Combine the halloumi cheese and peach slices in a large bowl. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil– just enough to lightly coat the peaches and cheese. Transfer everything to the grill, in batches if necessary. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side, until grill marks appear. Remove everything from the grill.
  4. Tear apart the grilled ciabatta to create large chunks. Add to a large bowl with the grilled peaches and halloumi. Then combine with the red onion and basil leaves. Set aside.
  5. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the remaining olive oil, white balsamic, dijon mustard, honey, salt and pepper. Adjust to taste.
  6. Lightly drizzle the vinaigrette over the panzanella and toss. Transfer to a plate and garnish with additional basil, if desired. Serve with the remaining dressing.
