    It is yummy/cheap/quick/healthy and uses up stale bread.

    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!

    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

    This sounds seriously yummy. Another think I do with stale bread is to use it for french toast. I soak the bread slices for at least 30 minutes in the egg/milk mixture then "saute" it in a skillet till it is golden and firm. Like to top it with fruit, yum.

    I've never had this but have heard it really is good. The recipes I've seen say to to cube the bread and toast as if to make croutons.

    I've never had a bread salad before and I have a question? Can a person use homemade bread?

    If it's good dense bread, it should work great. I just made some last night out of sourdough - it's so good! :)

    It just occurred to me that it reminds me of a Subway BMT - this would be really great with smoked ham, dry salame, etc. :)
