  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.
  3. For dressing, whisk together vinegar, the 3 tablespoons oil, the garlic, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Pour dressing over the tomato mixture; toss to coat. 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.
  4. Grilled Bison Flank Steak: Sprinkle bison flank steak with the 1 teaspoon salt and the 1/4 teaspoon pepper. For gas or charcoal grill, place steak on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-high heat. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until desired doneness. Cover bison flank steak with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Thinly slice steak across the grain.

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 sur...

Definitely a keeper. Don't need to change a thing.

This was excellent! The bison was perfect...just perfect. I loved this salad and will be making it again.
