Panzanella

You can use a variety of different summer vegetables in this dish. If you have any cucumbers left from the past week, this is a great way to use them. You could also use melon in place of the cucumber.

Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 mixed red and green tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • 2 tomatillos, cut into wedges
  • 1 medium cucumber, cut into half moons
  • 1 large or 2-3 small onions, diced
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 slices stale bread, cut into cubes
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Mix vegetables together, drizzle with the vinegar, one tablespoon of the oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat the remaining one tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bread cubes to skillet and stir to coat with oil. Sprinkle bread with herbs and spices, and cook, stirring occasionally until crispy and beginning to brown. Add hot bread directly to vegetables and toss to combine. Serve at room temperature.
