Panzanella (Bread Salad) with Summer Vegetables
Bring a large pan of water to boil over high heat. Meanwhile, core the tomatoes and make a small shallow "x" in the other end. When water comes to boil, add the tomatoes and cook for 10 to 15 seconds until skin begins to loosen at the cuts. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of ice water for 1 minute or until cool enough to handle. Remove skin and discard.
