Italian Bread And Vegetable Salad


1 loaf italian bread; halved lengthwise
--7 ounces
2 cloves garlic
--peeled and halved
5 bell peppers; mixed colors
--halved lengthwise; seeded
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 yellow summer squash; halved lengthwise
--cut in 1-inch pieces
2 zucchini; halved lengthwise
--cut in 1-inch pieces
3/4 teaspoons salt; divided
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup reduced-sodium vegetable broth
2 tablespoons no-salt-added tomato paste
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
3 ounces part-skim mozzarella
--cut in 1/2-inch cubes

1. Preheat broiler. Broil bread 6 inches from the heat until golden brown, about 30 seconds per side. When cool enough to handle, rub toasted bread with garlic; cut into 1-inch cubes and transfer to a large bowl.

2. Place bell pepper halves, cut-sides down, on broiler rack. Broil peppers 4 inches from heat for 12 minutes, or until skin is blackened. When peppers are cool enough to handle, peel them and cut in 1-inch squares.

3. Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking. Add yellow squash, zucchini and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until crisp tender, about 7 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the bread, tossing to combine.

4. Place 1/2 cup of the cut peppers in a food processor along with the vinegar, broth, tomato paste and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; process until smooth. Add the pepper puree to the bowl, along with the remaining cut peppers, basil and mozzarella, tossing to combine. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours before dividing among four plates and serving.
