|Wave Hill Breads Recommends: Panzanella (Tuscan Bread Salad)
Made with Fresh Market Ingredients
Margaret Sapir of Wave Hill Breads recently shared a recipe that underlines two longstanding truths about Down to Earth vendors: 1) They sure know good food and 2) Every week at the farmers market, they inspire one another. When great culinary minds unpack next to overflowing tables of fruits and vegetables, they get to thinking. For Margaret, the tomato bounty churned her creativity. She searched for recipes to bring together her award-winning breads with the local harvest. Here she suggests Panzanella a.k.a. Tuscan Bread Salad.
Local tomatoes are soon to recede into background, as cauliflower, winter squash, and other fall favorites begin to bear. We join in Margaret’s suggestion to savor the last of this year’s tomatoes, together with the amazing breads that Wave Hill Bread brings to market every week.
Note from Margaret: I’ve adapted this recipe from Divina Cucina.This Mediterranean salad is an example of the green, white, and red colors of the Italian flag. In the 1500’s, a poem by the famous artist Bronzino describes the salad. At that time, the tomato had not been introduced into Italy yet. The ingredients were limited to cucumber, onion, basil, arugula, and bread. The Italian bread is salt-free, so they add salt to the salad recipe. According to the recipe, it is important to use bread without preservatives and let it go stale. You can cut the Wave Hill Bread thickly and let it dry. The traditional recipe aims for a crumbed bread texture.
