  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place bread pieces in a shallow baking pan. Drizzle with the 2 tablespoons oil; toss gently to coat. Bake for 5 minutes or until toasted, stirring once or twice. Cool slightly; transfer to a very large bowl.
  2. Combine mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, and basil in a large bowl; set aside.

Spoon the tomato mixture over the bread; toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend. Serve with Grilled Bison Flank Steak.

Loved this recipe! Panzanella salad is such a great way to showcase summertime vegetables and the fresh basil took it over the top! We had never tried buffalo before and we were pleasantly surprised how much we liked it! Flank steak can be tough and chewy and I was hesitant to make this without a marinade to tenderize it, but, I am glad I didn't. It was tender and had wonderful flavor. I used lemon pepper instead of regular pepper, but, prepared everything else according to the recipe. If you haven't tried buffalo - give it a try!
