Has anyone made the "Early Summer Panzanella" using a good substitute for the garlic scapes?

Agree with Sarah, it's not easy to find one to one sub for garlic scape. I would go with one or two garlic cloves, a tiny bit of scallion tops, a lot of scallion greens and chives. I think that the combinations of green part of scallion and garlic are the closest to it in flavor.

I have been meaning to test this out and I haven't yet so this is just my best guess -- but I'd suggest a couple of cloves of garlic and either chives or scallion greens. I've attached a photo of what the scape pesto look like -- in the absence of scapes, I think you'd want some sort of milder allium green as a substitute!
