Chia seeds make a worthwhile contribution to any salad! Try this Panzanella with black chia seed and chia oil - extremely tasty and so easy to make.
Place the bread cubes in a bowl and toss in the olive oil. Heat a grill pan or heavy skillet and grill/fry the bread on all sides until golden. Remove from pan. Combine chia oil (if using), grilled bread cubes, tomatoes, onion, roasted capsicums, basil, chia seeds, olives, vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Top with a few extra basil leaves and an extra sprinkle of chia seeds.
Serve immediately with a fruity Rosé.
