Here it is a recipe from Tuscany called Panzanella
It is very easy to prepare , healthy and cheap .
This dish was prepared by the farmers working all days long in the countryside and once at home wanted something fresh and genuine in their dishes .
I usually advice to prepare this delicious Panzanella in Spring or Summer time .
There are different variations but i will present the traditional one .
In my video there are no onions because i have an allergy .. anyway a red onion cut in slices is part of the recipe .
In the traditional recipe i use bread from Tuscany .
But here in UK the only type of bread i found quite similar is this uploaded in my picture
Maybe a type of bread called Ciabatta is better but in this period of lockdown is quite hard to find it .
Cut the bread in slices and add 250 gr of water on it and leave for 40 minutes .
Then cut 4 red tomatoes in cubes , a pealed cucumber , and 10 leaves of basil cut in small pieces and put them in a bowl .
Add 2 spoons of white vinegar , olive oil extravergine , pepper and salt.
I did not find white vinegar and using balsamic vinegar .
In this case you need to consider the quantity because has a strong flavour .
After 40 minutes you take your bread and start to break in small pieces adding the vegetables
Add again a bit of olive oil , vinegar , salt and pepper and leave your recipe in the fridge for a couple of hoursbefore being served.
Someone prefers adding a boiled egg or a can of natural tuna .
It is up to you , but please do not add any pieces of bacon .
After that ??? Buon appetito !!!
