    Panzanella recipe is a great way to use up stale bread and tomatoes and it makes a delicious summer dish for everyone.

    As  from all the old recipes,  the ingredients used were often leftover ingredients. In fact in ancient time people were poor and they didn’t have money to buy every day new products.

    Over the years this simple dish has been revisited and  you can find it with different vegetables and components inside. This is my recipe, the one that comes from my aunt Nara’s cookbook.

    The ingredients given are in general, you can use more or less of them at your taste.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Soak the onion

    Cut the onion in thin slices (if you have a meat slicer it is great!) and soak them in a bowl with water and vinegar inside (3/4 water 1/4 vinegar).
    Let it soak for 2 hours

    Done

    Soak the bread

    You have to use a 4/5 days stale bread. Cut it in cubes and soak it in water for about 10/15 minutes.
    When 15 minutes have passed, squeeze the water out with your hands and crumble roughly in a wide bowl.

    Done

    Prepare the other ingredients

    Cut the tomatoes leaving out all the seeds and let the water goes out by draining them in a strainer.
    Cut the cucumber in slices, chop the basil leaves by hand and chop the lettuce. Put the all ingredients in the bowl together with the bread, add the tuna (previously drained), the diced tomatoes, salt and extra virgin olive oils. Mix with a wooden spoon and serve it out ! Enjoy !!!
