Panzanella

This recipe is by far my favourite! It is of Italian origin, from when times were tough and it was a way to use up stale bread.

Panzanella

1 serve= 129 calories

2 slices of toasted bread, chopped (or 2 cup of croutons)

2 tomatoes, chopped roughly

5 fresh mint leaves, shredded

1/4 red onion, chopped

1/4 cucumber, chopped roughly

2T red wine vinegar

2T olive oil

1) Add tomatoes, bread, mint leaves, onion and cucumber to a bowl, and toss.

2) Add red wine vinegar and olive oil, mix until stirred through.

3) Chill for about half an hour before serving.

 

I like to add a few extra thing like a little bit of feta cheese, or some chilled cooked/peeled prawns to bulk the meal up a bit more.

There are a lot of variations to this recipe, but this is the most simple.
