How to Make Easy Greek Panzanella Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the cubed bread, sprinkle lightly with salt, and cook over medium-low to medium heat until nicely browned (5 to 10 minutes), tossing frequently. If needed, add more oil while browning.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the peppers, cucumber, tomatoes, and onion. Toss gently to combine.

    Combine all the vinaigrette ingredients, except for the olive oil, in a bowl and whisk together.

    While continuing to whisk, add the olive oil; whisk until the oil is mixing in completely. ( I do this in my food processor ).
  3. Pour the vinaigrette over the vegetables. Add the cheese, olives, and bread crumbs; toss gently until everything is lightly coated with the vinaigrette.

    Allow the salad to set at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving, allowing flavors to blend together.


    Serve at room temperature.
