Shrimp Panzanella Salad
These days I'm cooking for two. After working in the garden, I can dash indoors and have this shrimp and bread salad on the table pronto. —Kallee Krong-McCreery, Escondido, California

Health Tip: Whole wheat French bread is becoming more popular, but can still be hard to find. Substitute cubed bread from a crusty whole wheat dinner roll to increase fiber in this salad.
