Dinner Tonight: Summer Panzanella

With a concept as simple as bread and tomatoes, a recipe seems almost worthless. But this one from Saveur stands out, if only for the garlic-infused bread. It's not an overwhelming stale garlic bread flavor—just a hint that perfumes this dish. Combine with great tomatoes and you really don't need much else in the world.

Real summer tomatoes are the heart and soul of this dish, so don't mess with supermarket ones. They'll just get neglected in the bowl. My one recommendation is to make far more than you think you'll need. The wife and I could have easily doubled this and eaten nothing else for dinner. Embrace this summer dish. 'Tis the season.
