This is a tasty and colorful salad that I like to make. You’ll notice that I haven’t given exact measures for the salad because a good mixed salad should be in part your own invention. One ingredient will never change though, extra virgin olive oil, it’s indispensable in all Italian salads.
Panzanella is a hearty bread salad from Tuscany that utilizes dry Tuscan bread, tomatoes, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil. Tuscan bread is also called “pane sciocco”, an unsalted bread that is often added in Tuscan recipes to complement the dish. Panzanella is a dish that stand on its own, a refreshing dish to serve on a hot summer day.

A summer salad that will brighten up your day with its vivid colors. Mozzarella pearls, fresh ripe tomatoes, black olives and capers make up one of the most common salads in Italy. This particular recipe is extremely tasty thanks to a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
Quick and easy salad that is wonderful in the summer when the ingredients are fresh. I learned to prepare this salad in Tropea, a little village in Calabria located in the south of Italy. This area is really famous for its red onions which are known world wide.
In the North of Italy this is a classic during the summer.
This is a super quick, easy and flavorful salad. It can be prepared ahead of time, refrigerated for a couple of hours and then served.
This is a salad that I often serve as an appetizer but it could be easily a light alternative for your main course. The Parmesan basket certainly gives a special touch to your appetizer presentation and it’s also good to nibble while tasting the salad.
