About the Recipe

Savory salad using fresh, local produce


  • 6 ounces country-style bread, torn into bite-size pieces (about 4 cups)

  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest

  • 1/2 cup olive oil, divided

  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

  • freshly ground pepper

  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

  • 1 small head radicchio, torn into bite-size pieces

  • 1 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves with tender stems

  • 1/2 cup green olives, pitted, halved

  • 3 ounces aged sheep's-milk cheese (such as Manchego), shaved

  • 3 ounces hard salami, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss bread with lemon zest and 1/4 cup oil on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Bake, tossing occasionally, until crisp on the outside but still chewy in the center, 8–10 minutes. Let cool.

  2. Whisk shallot, lemon juice, vinegar, and oregano in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Whisk in remaining 1/4 cup oil.

  3. Add radicchio, fennel, parsley, olives, cheese, salami, and bread to dressing; toss to combine.

  4. DO AHEAD: Salad can be dressed the night before. Cover and chill.
