How To Make A Panzanella Salad

How To Make A Panzanella Salad.

Today I am sharing a recipe from Antonio Carluccio’s latest recipe book “Vegetables”. 

The classic Panzanella Salad is a dish that holds a fond place in Antonio’s heart, a Tuscan favourite in his family growing up, he reminisces –

‘My mother used to make this dish for the sake of economy, using left-over bread which she’d bake in the oven to make it more absorbent – for me it’s the taste of summer.’

It’s a great dish that can be made with any quality leftover bread too, it means that it’s perfect for zero-waste cooking and eating at home.

This dish is also now available to order at Carluccio’s as part of their new Spring Summer Menu that launched last week, it can additionally be ordered as part of one of Carluccio’s lovely picnic hampers.
