Picture yourself at a sunny outdoor Tuscan osteria, a cool Mediterranean breeze blowing off the Tyrrhenian Sea, a chilled white wine with beads of condensation slowly running down the glass. Now take a bite of this panzanella salad, bursting with the fresh crunch of snap peas, asparagus, and radishes, and suddenly the picture in your mind will become much more vivid. A bright Champagne vinaigrette ties together this salad with a crispy crostini topped with tangy goat cheese. You're just a forkful away from your Italian vacation.
