Panzanella - classic Italian salad with bread

Panzanella is a popular Italian salad of vegetables and bread, which is usually served in the summer. For salad, take stale bread or fresh bread, but slightly baked on the grill. Depending on the recipe, for salad, bread is moistened with water, olive oil or a sauce prepared in advance, then mixed with vegetables, for example, with ripe tomatoes. Pieces of bread are soaked in the resulting salad juice. In most recipes, in addition to tomatoes, it is proposed to add other vegetables to the panzanella: cucumbers, onions, celery, olives and greens.
