Really lovely summer salad. I made it as a main course for two and we had leftovers. If you can't get the burrata where you live, though, don't even bother. It's the star of the show.
Grilled Panzanella with Arugula, Burrata, Summer Squash, and Olives
In this recipe, both the squash and the bread are slightly charred on the grill. This salad pairs well with any grilled meat.
