I am a fan of using bread in an unusual form – it’s a great way to use up odds and ends. Here, bread becomes a salad in the style of a Tuscan panzanella.
400g sourdough bread, preferably a bit aged: if not, dry in a low oven for a while
1 garlic clove
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1½ tbsp red wine vinegar
4 tbsp olive oil
1½ tbsp capers
2 tbsp green olives stuffed with anchovies, roughly chopped
400g ripe tomatoes, peeled
A few sprigs of oregano, leaves removed from stalks, roughly chopped
Salt and black pepper
1 Cut the garlic clove in half and slice the bread into thick pieces. Rub each piece of bread on both sides with the garlic clove. Rip the bread into bite‑size pieces.
2 Mix the onion with the red wine vinegar, olive oil, capers, olives and tomatoes and season to taste. Throw in the bread pieces and the oregano and mix well. Leave to stand for 30‑60 minutes at room temperature.
3 Taste again and season if necessary.
Serve with a green salad and some cold meat or a good cheese.
