Crispy Panzanella Salad Tuscan Bread & Tomato Salad Recipe

Video taken from the channel: Food Wishes


Panzanella is a rustic bread salad that is beyond-easy to throw together in the summer when tomatoes are juicy and sweet. Here, we let the tomatoes and super-ripe strawberries sit in the vinaigrette for a few minutes before adding the toasted bread. This allows the fruit to release their natural juices, making a more complex dressing. In a bowl mix together your olive oil and balsamic vinegar, adding the bread. Toss and let it soak while you assemble the rest of your salad.

In a separate. This Strawberry Panzanella Salad will be the breakout star of every meal this summer! Full of juicy tomatoes, sweet strawberries, toasted bread cubes, and topped with creamy burrata cheese, you won’t be able to resist this classic Tuscan dish.

I just have two words for. A traditional Panzanella is a Tuscan stale bread and tomato salad drizzled with oil and vinegar. This variation uses strawberries instead of tomatoes and are tossed with toasted bread, crumbled honey goat cheese, fresh basil, and a balsamic reduction. Panzanella Salad Preheat oven to 450 ° F/ 230 ° C. Add the bread cubes to a silicone mat on a baking sheet or a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper or foil.

Drizzle with oil, then rub into the cubes to combine. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1/4 cup. 1 loaf sourdough bread, cut in 1-inch cubes.

1/2 cup sherry. 2 tablespoons honey. 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced. 4 Roma tomatoes, chopped.

1/2 cup. This is a rustic, Italian salad made with day old, crusty bread, fresh tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese!Add the tomatoes, bread cubes, shallots, basil and mozzarella (if using) to the mixing bowl and toss to coat with the dressing. Allow the salad to sit for 20 to 30 minutes before serving. Give the salad a gentle toss and transfer to a serving platter.

Garnish with a. Until the 20th century, Panzanella, often known as Italian tomato and bread salad, recipes were based on onions rather than tomatoes. However, this dish is best made with flavorful summer tomatoes that can be chopped into bite size pieces. If you can find heirloom tomatoes, a mix of colors will create a lovely looking plate. Place colander with tomatoes in the sink.

Add shallot, garlic, mustard, and vinegar to the bowl with tomato juice. Whisking constantly, drizzle in the remaining 1/2 cup (120ml) olive oil. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.

If the berries and tomatoes are just a tad shy of acid, give the salad a tiny drizzle of raspberry vinegar or balsamic – but when I say tiny, I mean it.

When this salad is sandwiched between two slices of bread, it becomes a caprese sandwich; try it with a little pesto spread on the bread.

When the rustic Italian bread salad, panzanella, is done well, the sweet juice of the tomatoes mixes with a bright­tasting vinaigrette, moistening chunks of thick­crusted bread until they’re soft and just a little chewy—but the line between lightly moistened and unpleasantly soggy is very thin.

  • I watched an episode the other day at my Mothers home but can’t find it anywhere now. James was using home grown tomatoes and also made a “bloody mary” and strained it through Muslin. I really was to find it again.

  • My mom used to make this with stale bread. She called it bread salad. It was best after the bread soaked up some dressing but before it went soggy. I like the way you fried the cubes as it would give the salad not only more flavor but a longer period of crunchiness. Have to try this!

  • In Tuscany where the dish originated they use stail country bread, no need to make it crunchy
    But it should not be soggy either.
    I ate panzanella at age 9 and it was a fascinating experience
    The sourness of the vinegar

  • I’m about to go make this for work tomorrow. I’ve made it several times and I have learned through trial and error that you can use grape tomatoes too but they just don’t taste as good as cherry tomatoes. Imho.

  • Love all your recipes Jamie! I’m a big fan of yours! I have always loved tomatos. Anything tomorrow’s. Do love this one to. Thanks so much!!

  • I made this recipe last night! I had been planning on using balsamic instead of rwv due to my sulfites allergy, but Chef John must have read my mind because put balsamic on BLAST. So I went with the red wine, and I gotta say, he was right and it was Amazing, even with the entire inside of my mouth in pain.
    When I say I’m going to risk another allergic reaction just to make this EXACT recipe again, you KNOW it’s good. TRUST IN CHEF JOHN.

  • Thanks, Steve enjoying your content! I’ve made both the Panzanella and Caesar salad and they’ve turned out fantastic. I am wondering if you would consider a jicama salad for your Mexican meals playlist. I never know what to do with jicama and would love to learn.

  • Made this a few times. It’s always good. I’ve been thinking about trying it once with the bread fried in duck or goose fat. I’ll report back in time.

  • watching all these videos here makes me think I’m drowning my salads in vinegar and pepper and I’m not sure if that’s just my personal taste or if I’m actually messing something up really badly^^

  • Saw a trick Chef the other day, take to plastic lids, put like 8 tomatoes an lay them in between press and cut cross wise all at once, it work’s

  • This is by far the best recipe for this salad I have ever tasted.
    Might make this again tomorrow to celebrate our exceptionally beautiful springtime.
    I have made this many times already but still love watching this video:-)

  • My neighbor gave me tomatoes and basil from his garden. I had stale bread. I searched for a recipe and came upon this. The absolute best recipe for this salad. No question about it. I was so proud of the results I shared with my friends. They agreed.

    But it should not be soggy either.
    I ate panzanella at age 9 and it was a fascinating experience
    The sourness of the vinegar

  • While I admit the cheeseball video helped to a small degree, it’s not the same when using a liquid along with a solid (or something like eggs, that can be both simultaneously). At least not at my novice level.

  • AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH………I’m dying over here. My very favorite recipe in the world. No, No! Don’t make that crunch sound. It makes it even more tempting!

  • I understand organized crime (mafia) in Italy & Sicily has take over the olive oil business. No good olive oil is available anymore. All weak blended stuff selling as extra virgin. Very sad…

  • Chef John, I couldn’t “destroy the evidence” when my Flipa-Flipa went sideways all over my stove and kitchen floor…soooo I started anew. Since I ran out of regular virgin olive oil I used some rosemary and some jalapeño flavored olive oil instead, and used cherry tomatoes (the only type I had in my fridge). And since I’ve never tried your recipe to know what it taste like, I must admit that I felt quite pleased with the way mine turned out, but I promise the next time I prepare this delicious salad it’ll be just like yours. Thank you for sharing awesome recipes and for the confidence you inspire every type of cook to take on their kitchen:)

  • YES! Just finished a nice big bowl as a meal on a warm summer evening and it was fabulous. I can’t believe how crunchy the croutons remained even though they managed to be packed with the delicious juices in every bite. Another winner, Chef John. This is probably the twentieth of your recipes I’ve tried and I just love ’em all!

  • This was totally delicious to eat when I finally got down to make it. So good in fact, that I made this salad for two days in a row. I even added some fresh basil in other variations and it is just as pleasant.

  • Actually in Italy they tend not to add either lemon or vinegar on tomato salads as they think either covers the slight acidic taste of the tomatoes themselves. Only perhaps a bit of balsamic vinegar since it’s sweet. And they would never ever add both lemon and vinegar together.

  • Hi Chef John, my parmigiano reggiano stuck mostly to the pan and the spatula. This resulted in a lot of crispy parmesan crumbs, which are very tasty, but my croutons don’t look as elegant as yours. What did I do wrong?

  • I love the colour of those dark cherry tomatoes. I’ve never seen that variety before:( ‘Toy box’, good term and a nice idea. I’ll have to remember, near the summer time… I can imagine making an even more colourful salad with 3 different capsicums. Hmm. It’d have a good texture too. I like the crunch of capsicum. This is exactly the kind of thing my mum used to make.

  • In my opinion, anyone who thinks tomatos are difficult to cut with a straight edge knife has never used a properly sharpened knife. I’ve only sharpened knives maybe 10 times ever (so i’m not very good), but even my knives can cut through tomato with no force other than the weight of the knife

  • This was totally delicious to eat when I finally got down to make it. So good in fact, that I made this salad for two days in a row. I even added some fresh basil in other variations and it is just as pleasant.

  • I’ve followed this recipe on multiple occasions, and it’s scrumptious every time. I love it so much. Thank you so much, Chef John!

  • I made this for dinner tonight and it was fabulous. Love the cheese secret. For an extra basil kick, I used basil flavored olive oil.

  • I’ve been making the same version of panzanella for about 20 years (including the shaved parmesan), but still watch cooking videos in case I might learn something new. The fresh peppers are a great idea, though I don’t have any on hand so tonight I’m going to add some jarred pepperoncini. Thanks for the tip!

  • Omg my favorite summer snack, got out in my garden and grab some fresh tomatoes and basil. Try adding cucumbers and red onion and bring to your next picnic. Best if cooled in the fridge for 20 min. Beats the heat here in FL.

  • Thanks, Steve enjoying your content! I’ve made both the Panzanella and Caesar salad and they’ve turned out fantastic. I am wondering if you would consider a jicama salad for your Mexican meals playlist. I never know what to do with jicama and would love to learn.

  • “Migas” is a pretty stereotypical dish from central Spain that seems to run along the same lines, and was developed for the same reason. I think it’s basically stale bread, a little oil, plenty of garlic, and whatever vegetables you have on hand 😉

  • Watching these videos on this channel im amazed. This channel is gonna blow up. These are quality videos with quality content. 1 million views by the end of next year. Great stuff

  • Its a good start but add some finely sliced red onion and perhaps some sliced Bocconcini and there’s a salad to go with anything anytime of the day

  • That looks delicious! I’m going to make it this weekend. Thanks! Also, nice editing on this, really liked the florance b roll really gave me some Casey vibes. If you don’t mind, what song was used? As always keep it up buddy rooting for ya

  • I think this is a good revisited version of panzanella, of course is not like the original one, but It’s not meant to be (no angry italians gripes!:D)…but I can guess why everyone on youtube suggest to prepare it in this “crispy” way (cutting old bread in cubes and then frying or grilling it), the original version has a mushy consistence and it looks less fancy!! But if you want to catch the tuscan taste:D I’d like to suggest you to add raw onion instead of raw garlic! Panzanella reminds me of my childhood summer vacations, when I prepared panzanella for my mum using sun-ripened tomatoes from our vegetable garden! Greetings from Tuscany!:)

  • Made this a few times. It’s always good. I’ve been thinking about trying it once with the bread fried in duck or goose fat. I’ll report back in time.

  • this channel is so underrated. people just dont know anymore what good food is. other youtubers fry a5 steaks and get millions of views and followers. you are by far my favorite food youtuber. keep it up! 😉

  • LOVE ur personality, love ur recipes and I probably watched every video ever posted under ur name here. I do miss money saving meals the way it was the first 6 episodes. Loads of helpful tips and the bit when you helped others with food waste was my fav. I hardly waste a thing anymore thanx to this show. Please bring it back the way it was.

  • Love all your recipes Jamie! I’m a big fan of yours! I have always loved tomatos. Anything tomorrow’s. Do love this one to. Thanks so much!!

  • Its a good start but add some finely sliced red onion and perhaps some sliced Bocconcini and there’s a salad to go with anything anytime of the day

  • One of my favourite salad recipes this. Fantastic way of making boring plain jane salad interesting and flavoursome. Unless you are on a strict diet with no carbs aloud in which case your missing out! Great idea to fry off the bread first to keep that texture. Great dish thanks for the upload Chef John!

  • Actually in Italy they tend not to add either lemon or vinegar on tomato salads as they think either covers the slight acidic taste of the tomatoes themselves. Only perhaps a bit of balsamic vinegar since it’s sweet. And they would never ever add both lemon and vinegar together.

  • This is crazy good. Just as a warning-if you make this, make twice the amount of croutons you think you’ll need, since you will eat half of them as they cool.

  • Really good tomatoes don’t need salt, they’re tasty enought without it. I guess your recipe tastes nice, but I don’t think you can feel much of the tomato in there. Far from ultimate.

  • Omg my favorite summer snack, got out in my garden and grab some fresh tomatoes and basil. Try adding cucumbers and red onion and bring to your next picnic. Best if cooled in the fridge for 20 min. Beats the heat here in FL.

  • My neighbor gave me tomatoes and basil from his garden. I had stale bread. I searched for a recipe and came upon this. The absolute best recipe for this salad. No question about it. I was so proud of the results I shared with my friends. They agreed.

  • I like to eat spicy food and this recipe is perfect for me. Thanks for the recipe, you’re the best in the kitchen. �������� yummy yummy!

  • Come on Jamie, how can you call this the “ultimate tomato salad” when you YOURSELF have made a much better one?  The tomato salad with chorizo and sherry vinegar you made in Andalucia puts this plain old boring tomato salad to shame!

  • This is crazy good. Just as a warning-if you make this, make twice the amount of croutons you think you’ll need, since you will eat half of them as they cool.

  • I also love adding some finely diced shallots to my tomato salad.  When these soke up the balsamic vinegar it’s the bomb and makes it all a bit more zingy. It’s great for BBQs etc.  

    And if you have some stale bread, Cut it up into pieces, drissle with olive-oil, and grill it > ad it to the salad it ads a little crunch and hey, no point throying away stale bread or feeding it to the ducks 😉  (With bread, red wine vinegar is even better than balsamic) 

  • I understand organized crime (mafia) in Italy & Sicily has take over the olive oil business. No good olive oil is available anymore. All weak blended stuff selling as extra virgin. Very sad…

  • The reason i love our videos is because you make me feel that cooking good meals is super easy but still has gorgeous results. Very inspirational. Thank you for sharing your great jobs.

  • Hi, thanks a lot for this great recipe! I am using it as a basic for my own tomato salad but I am doing it much easier.
    I am using as well a lot of different tomatoes and I season it with a lot of different spices (but pepper and salt only work as well) and then I am just adding roasted bread and that’s it.
    My family loves it and I am supposed to make the tomato salad at every birthday or party.:)
    So thankyou very much and greats from Germany:D

  • Making this right now with our cherry tomatoes and basil from the greenhouse and the stale leftover sourdough baguette. Thanks, Chef John. Don’t want those ripe cherry tomatoes going to waste. Delicious. Though I do bake the bread cubes and olive oil in the convection oven for ease.

  • Enjoy the final stretch of summer guys!! Hope you guys have enough inspiration to make a delicious Labor Day! Next up, Zeppoles!! See ya Thursday!

  • I am Italian, (true Italian from Italy ) and Panzanella, fettuccine Alfredo or spaghetti with meatballs, or other shit, in Italy do not exist, REPEAT DOES NOT EXIST!!! it’s just an American invention.

  • This is by far the best recipe for this salad I have ever tasted.

  • I made this for dinner tonight and it was fabulous. Love the cheese secret. For an extra basil kick, I used basil flavored olive oil.

  • Dear Mr. Oliver, this looks very nice, but have you ever tried making salads with pumpkin seed oil? It’s considered THE salad (but also other things) oil in Styria (Slovenia and Austria). I would highly recomend it 😉 Best wishes, B.

  • Try to add raw red onion instead of raw garlic, you’ll get closer to the original taste of panzanella! And an advice, eat it for lunch and not for dinner, because in my opinion it is not so easy to digest!!:D:D

  • hi Chef John. I am a new subscriber. My grandson and I love your channel and your sense of humor. I made this today with a little variation. I used some Little Caesars Crazy Garlic Bread fried in EV Coconut Oil. I also used Plummy or Roma tomatoes because that’s what’s common here in Jamaica. I added chives and lemon basil from my garden and will be served on a bed of angel hair spiralized cucumbers. Wish I could post a picture here, but I will provide a link back to this recipe when I post it on FB. thanks. looking forward to the next recipe

  • I’ve been making the same version of panzanella for about 20 years (including the shaved parmesan), but still watch cooking videos in case I might learn something new. The fresh peppers are a great idea, though I don’t have any on hand so tonight I’m going to add some jarred pepperoncini. Thanks for the tip!

  • hi Chef John. I am a new subscriber. My grandson and I love your channel and your sense of humor. I made this today with a little variation. I used some Little Caesars Crazy Garlic Bread fried in EV Coconut Oil. I also used Plummy or Roma tomatoes because that’s what’s common here in Jamaica. I added chives and lemon basil from my garden and will be served on a bed of angel hair spiralized cucumbers. Wish I could post a picture here, but I will provide a link back to this recipe when I post it on FB. thanks. looking forward to the next recipe

  • watching all these videos here makes me think I’m drowning my salads in vinegar and pepper and I’m not sure if that’s just my personal taste or if I’m actually messing something up really badly^^

  • That looks awesome man. Would love to go to Italy one day. Great video. Keep crushing it! Love that you took something and made it your own by modifying the recipe. We do that all the time. Farmers Markets are great. Makes me feel like an actual chef.

  • Watching these videos on this channel im amazed. This channel is gonna blow up. These are quality videos with quality content. 1 million views by the end of next year. Great stuff
