Panzanella: Mamma Mia, This Tuscan Bread & Tomato Salad Is Delicious! by 30Seconds Food
The more doctors test it, the more they find that eating Mediterranean is the absolute best way to lose weight. Based on the cooking and eating style of Italy, “The Mamma Mia! Diet” by Paola Lovisetti Scamihorn features olive oil, fruits and vegetables, nuts, legumes, fish and poultry, whole grains and, yes, wine! Since this recipe for panzanella calls for tuna canned in olive oil, no other oil is needed. If you use tuna canned in water, it is recommended to add 2-3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. You can substitute Tuscan bread with other hearty Italian breads, such as a Pugliese loaf.
- 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
- salt and freshly ground pepper
Here’s how to make it:
- 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.
- Add tuna and mix well. Taste and add more salt, pepper and vinegar, if necessary. Tear in basil and refrigerate for 1 hour. Serve cold.
