10. Mix this through really well with a spoon before adding another few drizzles of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic and mixing again.
11. Now, get your piece of baked ricotta and break it in small chunks, adding it straight to the salad, keeping a third of it to the side for later.

VINCENZO’S PLATE TIP:

I wanted to create a Panzanella Salad Recipe “My Way” using my own twist so I used baked ricotta as it is salty and adds a rustic texture to the dish.

HOW TO SERVE:

1. Pour the salad into the middle of a long rectangular serving plate.

2. Break chunks of the left over piece of baked ricotta into the salad so that it looks fluffy and white and sits at the top.
3. Squeeze balsamic glaze over the top, making a swirling pattern over the top and bleeding onto the plate a little bit.
