Soma,

I am taking this as a lovely compliment ... The Vet, my husband and I enjoy life, the best of what life has to offer .. For us, firstly our health, then our two grown married daughters, and their children; after that; great gastronomy and wonderful wines to pair it with ... Our hobby is travelling and enjoying ...

Thanks.
Margi.

I have seen many variations on this dish, i.e.:

Grilling the bread
using sourdough bread
Panzanella skewers
adding shrimp or salmon
adding olives, capers, etc.

I like this idea for a party:

Panzanella Skewers served with Yellow Gazpacho Shooters:

I'm sorry, but I don't see how this is similar to a Caesar salad. Caesar salad contains pretty much romaine, anchovies, Parmesan cheese and garlic croutons. Panzanella and Caesar have almost no ingredients in common.
