Panzanella is a favorite of mine. It’s super easy, has lots of veggies and variations, and of course, delicious. It’s a great way to use up stale bread! 

You can’t say that doesn’t look amazing, and believe me, it is! 



1/2 cucumber 

1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes

1/2 cup red onion

2 cups stale bread, cubed

3 tbs evoo

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tbs red wine vinegar

2 tsp salt

2 tsp pepper

1 clove garlic

1/4 cup feta

Optional: 1/2 cup kalamata olives or capers (I’m more of a caper person, but to each his own)


1. Preheat oven to 375. Spread bread cubes over a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tbs evoo, sprinkle with garlic powder and a pinch of salt. Toast until edges of cubes are browned, 5-10 minutes . 

2. While the bread toasts, halve the tomatoes and dice the cucumber. Slice onions. Finely mince the clove of garlic. 

3. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Add more vinegar and evoo to soften the bread to your preference. Chow down!
