    Susiecat too's Note:

    This is based on a similar recipe by Rori Trovato. It is made from day-old bread, and is delicious! Enjoy with a glass of wine for a perfect lunch, or serve as an appetizer. Most of the cooking time = waiting time. Waiting for the infused oil to cool, waiting for the flavors to meld before serving. This is a really easy recipe.

      I've never made Panzanella before and did LOVE this recipe, which I anticipate making again when the weather is warmer. But why wouldn't I love this: it was full of so many of my favourite ingredients! On this occasion, I halved the recipe which we enjoyed last night - and that still gave me a generous portion for today's take-to-work lunch. I followed the recommendations of two earlier reviewers and added a little balsamic vinegar to the red wine vinegar: a great blend of flavours. Otherwise I made this exactly to the recipe. A fabulous super star recipe, Susiecat too! I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing it.

      I loved this! I loved everything about it - tomatoes, garlic, croutons! This is a keeper and wonderful for this time of year. Thanks for sharing!

      Summer in a bowl...we have TONS of fresh tomatoes right now and are enjoying them immensely....I like this version of panzanella because I think the croutons are better in it than just plain dried bread. I used a bit less bread, more tomatoes, and more garlic (we always do, I think) and I'm looking forward to it again with some bay shrimp tossed in. Great version of the classic! Thanks!
