Bread & Tomato Salad


From EatingWell:  Summer 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

When it's too hot to cook, just step outside and gather tomatoes and basil from your garden, cut up some day-old country bread and make this flavorful, easy salad, our take on the classic Italian bread salad known as panzanella.

6 servings | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Whisk oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add tomatoes, bread, onion, basil and capers. Toss to combine. Let the salad sit for about 5 minutes to allow it to absorb the dressing's flavors, stirring occasionally. Serve at room temperature.
