Summer and panzanella go hand-in-hand. It's a great way to use up juicy, sweet tomatoes and garden herbs. It's pretty interchangeable, too, which adds to the appeal. I've used mint here, but basil is the standard. Have some thyme on hand? Toss a few leaves into the mix. As for the bread, pretty much any crusty loaf will do. If it's a bit stale, all the better.

If you really want to make the dish rustic, go ahead and tear the chicken from the bones and toss the meat into the panzanella mix.
