Ensalda de Chicharrones, (a sort of Mexican take on Panzanella) makes it the Mission local way

If you live in SF, may I recommend you make salad this with amazing chicharrones from 4505 Meats (you’ll find them on Thursdays at Mission Barlett St. Farmers Market, or check out their store in Hayes Valley. They are light as air, amazing)!

Recipe that follows is from Zarela Martinez, follow link to her original post
