    It is yummy/cheap/quick/healthy and uses up stale bread.
    Do try, it reminds me of Italy

    This sounds like a dumb question but... do you stuff this inside the bread? Spread on the bread and toast?

    How do you serve this? It sounds delicious but I need more info...

    I didn't mean the recipe was dumb! That never occurred to me! I meant I'm dumb because I've never heard of Panzanella...

    I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.

    I don't think purplemem meant that the recipe was dumb. I think she meant that she felt her question about what to do with the bread was dumb. But it isn't. I was wondering the same thing!

    Thanks, LJ.

    It sounds to me like a bread salad, where the bread is broken into bite sized pieces, and tossed with the veggies and dressing. It sounds delicious.

    Exactly! :) It originated in Tuscany and lots of the restaurants there serve it - it sounds a bit strange, but it's DELICIOUS.

    Don't use ordinary bread - it will turn into moosh.

    Use heavy sourdough or Italian bread - something that takes real chewing. :)

    I serve it in a bowl, a lunch in itself ,or to accompany fish cold/mea--especially in summer.
    You merely put all the ingredients in the bowl and mix; it is rather like an bread/veg salad but so tasty.

    Sounds simply delecious! Thank you for sharing it with us! I am having trouble swallowing after surgery but I am going to try this tonihgt. It seems that as long as I can eat slowly and it is muchy I can do it!

    Heehee, I was correct. This is a perfect recipe for my husband and me because all too often I end up throwing out half a loaf of bread.

    :-D :D
