Italian Bread Salad Panzanella!


September 22, 2017

image Tangy Crrrunchy with bold robust flavor…Panzanella is as delicious as it’s easy to make!
An Italian version of our Desi Bhel, it is a simple bread salad that can be put together with the simplest of ingredients!
Dice ripe tomatoes, sprinkle with salt and keep in a wire mesh to drain over a bowl….to collect the juices.

Cut bread into small squares

Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle a touch of salt. Toast in a 400 degree oven in the middle rack for 15-20 min till golden….keep aside to cool.

Now whisk olive oil & red wine vinegar( can also use balsamic) in the proportion of 2:1 along with the collected juices, salt & pepper. You have your tomato vinaigrette salad dressing ready.

Thinly slice cucumbers and onions.

Toss them with the toasted bread, diced tomato & salad dressing….garnish with torn fresh basil/parsley & serve immediately!

PS : Couldn’t resist sprinkling a touch of crushed red pepper….to up the spice element! 🙂

Note: you can also make this with store-bought bread croutons, if you are in a time-saving mode!
