Panzanella Salad Recipes (PHOTOS)

All salads should have bread in it.

If you want to get people excited about salad, you need to add bread to it. And not just any regular ol' slice of sandwich bread, but crusty, toasted Italian bread that's been dosed with a healthy helping of olive oil. What you need is a panzanella salad recipe. This salad is popular in the Tuscan region of Italy -- and we know we can trust the Tuscans when it comes to good Italian food.

The beauty about the Panzanella salad is that it gives you a delicious way to use up your day-old bread. And it's also a great dish to make with the piles of ripe tomatoes we can expect this summer. Of course, there are many ways to make a panzanella salad -- you don't have to stick to the traditional combination of tomatoes and bread. But whatever twist you take on it, just don't leave out the bread.
