Is there anything worse than a sad salad? Especially coming from a vegans perspective, when everyone assumes all you eat is a salad with shredded carrots and tomatoes so that’s all they have to serve you. Yeah, no thanks…
Now give me a salad with lots of bread and veggies, you know, something that will actually fill me up a bit, I’m all in. Panzanella salads are perfect as a side, or main, perhaps add some beans for a little more protein. It’s filling and delicious, and also goes great with a glass of white wine on a hot summers day. Trust me!
1/2 loaf sourdough bread, cubed
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 olive oil (plus more if needed)**
2 tbls balsamic vinegar
S&P to taste
Thyme, oregano, herbs to taste
Mix olive oil and balsamic together with salt, pepper, and herbs. Mix other ingredients together in a bowl and toss together. Chill in the fridge and serve!
**You don’t want the dish to be too oily but you don’t want it to be dry so make sure you add just whats necessary.
