This is a great, classic, Italian salad. You can add to it -- like peppers, anchovies, garlic, etc. But this is the pure thing. Use very good olive oil. From chocolateandzucchini.com

Recipe Ingredients for Panzanella

6 oz (stale) whole wheat bread, cut in thick dice
10 cherry tomatoes, cut in wedges
1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
2 tbsp red onions (the original recipe calls for cipolliti rossi - dolci), thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh basil, torn
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 salt, freshly-ground pepper

Recipe Directions for Panzanella

  1. Place the bread in a large salad bowl, add the tomatoes, and stir to combine. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes, as the bread absorbs the juices from the tomatoes and softens.

  2. Pluck the basil leaves and tear them into bits. Add the cucumbers, onions, and basil to the bowl, season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. Toss gently to mix, preferably with your hands.

  3. Refrigerate until ready to serve. At the last minute, add in the vinegar, taste and adjust the seasoning.
