Default Panzanella (Tomato and Bread Salad)

My part-time roommate stays with me 2-3 nights a week. She ALWAYS brings a loaf of French bread, a baguette or fresh crusty rolls, and I'm not much of a bread-eater, but I hate to toss food out.

Tonight, I made a simple panzanella, which I LOVE!!!

I used:
- half a loaf of French bread, cubed,
- four small garden tomatoes, cubed
- some thinly sliced red onion
- chiffonaded basil

Tossed together with a mixture of 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/8 cup red wine vinegar, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Served this as a side with my beloved store-bought rotisserie chicken.

MAN! This was a great after-work meal!

That looks fantastic Lee. I have never had that before. I usually just have tomato salad with the bread on the side to dip. This sounds wonderful.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Thanks, LS and Peep.

Peep, this is a good way to use up French bread that's a day or two old. The dressing and juice of the tomatoes moistens the bread and it's delicious!

Bump!

This time I used scallions, and I drizzled a little Good Seasons Italian salad dressing on the bread salad.

Can't wait to be using my own homegrown tomatoes for this! My basil is ready - just waiting for the tomatoes to catch up!

Haven't made this for awhile, but I had half a loaf of Italian bread and lots of tomatoes and basil, and a small chunk of mozzarella.

I used the NYTimes recipe this time, and although I liked the toasted bread cubes better than non-toasted, I had to add Good Seasonings Italian dressing for flavor.

I'll stick with the Good Seasonings from now on.
