We’ve got the perfect recipe for a potluck, barbecue, or picnic: panzanella salad. It’s simple to make, is served at room temperature, and covers a lot of dietary restrictions (it’s vegetarian and dairy-free).
This delicious dish originated inTuscany, where it has been a staple since the 1600s. In fact, it wasn’t until recently that the dish was tomato-based – it used to be all about the onions! This recipe still calls on onions a bit, but there’s no question that fresh, juicy tomatoes are the star here.
And don’t forget – the bread is key in this salad. Fresh bread might be too fragile, which is why day-old, stale bread that is nice and crunchy is perfect for soaking up the vinaigrette.
