I already posted one recipe for Panzanella, an Italian style salad featuring day old bread. This one is more traditional using mainly onion, basil and tomato but with a little arugula thrown in for some green.
1 tomato, with it's juice, diced
1/2 a small red onion, thinly sliced
5 leaves of fresh basil, minced
2 large hand fulls of baby arugula
2-3 c. cubed day old bread, multigrain is nice
Juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon
A few drizzles of balsamic or red wine vinegar
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt & black pepper to taste
1) Chop the vegetables and then toss them in a large bowl with the cubed bread.
2) Drizzle the dressing ingredients over the salad, there is no need to mix them together in a separate bowl, and then add the salt and pepper to taste. Toss the salad again and serve.
This makes 2 large servings or 4 side servings.
