Panzanella, or bread salad, is a great way to get rid of stale bread and take advantage of gorgeous summer tomatoes.
This is a loose recipe that can be adapted based on what you have on hand. I had two leftover dinner rolls and could think of no better use for them than this salad. It is simple, hearty, and delicious.
Extra virgin olive oil
Shallots or red onion
Salt and pepper
Cube and toast bread (make sure it doesn’t burn!) in the oven. Cube tomatoes and slice shallots and basil.
Toss with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
