Use the bottom part of ciabatta for this salad. The crusty, flat surface is easier to grill and provides more crunch. Don't skip the delicious pickled vegetable topping--it's earthy, crunchy, sweet-sour, and welcome in every bite.

Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: about 1 2/3 cups salad and 1/3 cup carrot mixture)
