Panzanella salad, AKA a Tuscan "bread salad," is made with the freshest produce, delicious dressing, and crusty bread.

⁠Pro Tip: The best way to make use of bread going stale is by making this dish. The bread is toasted and then soaks in a vinegary marinade that makes it all melt in your mouth.🤤  

Eat Well.
