Mamma Mia Panzanella Salad Recipe: This Healthy Tuscan Bread & Tomato Salad Recipe Is Delicious

More and more research is pointing to the Mediterranean diet being a healthy (and delicious!) way to lose weight. Since this recipe for panzanella from The Mamma Mia! Diet by Paola Lovisetti Scamihorn calls for tuna canned in olive oil, no other oil is needed. 

If you use tuna canned in water, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. You can substitute Tuscan bread with other hearty Italian breads.

Cuisine: Italian
Prep Time: 10 minutes and 1 hour to chill
Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 7 ounces Tuscan bread or whole-grain bread, cut into small pieces
  • 3 Roma tomatoes, cut into cubes
  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and cut into small pieces
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 4 ounces canned tuna in olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 12 fresh basil leaves

Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a big bowl place the tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and season with salt and pepper. Add bread, vinegar and water. Toss all the ingredients together. The bread should be wet but not soggy. Break it up with a fork.
  2. Add the tuna and mix well. Taste and add more salt, pepper and vinegar, if necessary. Tear in basil and refrigerate for 1 hour. Serve cold.
