Grilled Shrimp Panzanella
I like to liven up typical tossed salad with tender grilled shrimp, bread cubes and feta cheese. The colorful dish is an attractive addition to party buffets. —Veronica Callaghan, Glastonbury, Connecticut

Since I live alone, I modified the ingredient list to accommodate one person, using a single ciabatta baguette I also used kalamata olives and precooked shrimp to save time. Delicious!
