A Panzanella salad is a rustic Tuscan dish made with torn chunks of semi-stale bread, tomatoes, basil, and red onions. It’s mainly a summer salad, but by adjusting the ingredients, it can be enjoyed year-round!
– Assorted tomatoes (as many colours as possible) roughly chopped into large chunks
-Thinly sliced red onion
-Roughly chopped asparagus, seasoned with salt and pepper, grilled on a griddle pan or sautéed lightly in a frying pan with some olive oil until slightly charred
-Torn basil leaves
-Some rustic bread (like sourdough) torn or cut into big chunks and lightly toasted in a frying pan with some olive oil
Mix together a light vinaigrette using extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar (sherry or cider vinegar will do as well), a squeeze of lemon juice, salt and pepper
Season with salt and pepper
