Summer Salad with Honey Barbecue Vinaigrette

from Panza's

Serves 6


8 ounces thinly sliced corn bread, cut into 2-inch squares

Vegetable oil spray

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese


1/4 cup smoky barbecue sauce

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon honey


Freshly ground pepper

1 bunch of arugula, leaves torn

1 head radicchio, torn

Mixed Greens

1 small shallot, very thinly sliced

2 ounces shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (about 1 1/2 cups)


  1. CROUTONS: Place corn bread in a bowl and spray with vegetable oil. Sprinkle half of the grated Parmesan cheese on top and carefully toss the corn bread and repeat with the remaining Parmesan.
  2. Spray a large nonstick baking sheet with vegetable oil and arrange the corn bread squares in a single layer. Cook at 300°, turning once, until the cheese is browned.  Let the croutons cool until crisp, then tear into chunks.
  3. SALAD: In a large bowl, whisk the barbecue sauce with the olive oil, lemon juice and honey; season with salt and pepper. Add the arugula, radicchio, greens and shallot and toss. Add the corn bread croutons and Parmesan shavings, toss gently and serve.
