Panzanella, or "bread salad," is an Italian classic. Buy a firm-textured bread so the pieces don't become mushy.

Prep 20 min
Total 1 hr 20 min

  • 4 cups cubed (1 inch) day-old Italian or other firm-textured bread
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut into bite-size pieces (2 cups)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

1. In large glass or plastic bowl, mix bread, tomatoes, garlic, bell pepper, basil and parsley.

2. In tightly covered container, shake remaining ingredients. Pour over bread mixture; toss gently until bread is evenly coated.

3. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour, but no longer than 8 hours, until bread is softened and flavors are blended. Toss before serving.
