PANZANELLA TUSCAN BREAD SALAD

From: James M. Zanella, Pittsburgh
Primary category: Italian

Ingredients

1 medium cucumber (skin on), sliced or chopped
3 medium ripe red tomatoes, sliced or chopped
1 medium onion, sliced or chopped
1/2 loaf crusty Italian bread*, into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup stuffed pimento green olives
1/3 lb. Genoa Salami**, sliced or chopped

Dressing:
1/4 cup basil, fresh - if possible
3 cloves fresh garlic or 2 TBS minced garlic in a jar
1/4 tsp. salt - 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup extra virgin light olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar

Procedure

Combine and mix the first 6 ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk dressing ingredients together. Toss dressing with first 6 ingredients.
