Golden Beet Panzanella Instructions
Combine all the dressing ingredients into a container and blend well. This can be made ahead of time to allow flavors to develop.
Preheat oven to 400F. Wrap beets in foil and roast for about 1 hour until tender. Peel and dice.
Toast the bread slices, cut into cubes and set aside.
Peel the oranges and remove the white pith. Cut into segments.
Crush the pistachios.
Chop the parsley and mint.
Combine the beets, orange segments, sunflower seeds, herbs, and 1/2 tablespoon sumac in a large bowl.
Toss with half of the dressing. Add salt and pepper to taste.
If eating immediately, add the cubed bread and more dressing. Toss until the bread cubes are coated with dressing. You may have dressing left over.
Sprinkle the pistachios on top along with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon sumac, salt and pepper to taste.
If making this ahead of time, toss with the bread cubes right before serving.
