Chef Meg's Whole Grain Panzanella (Bread and Tomato Salad)
Very Good 4.6/5
(5 ratings)

Panzanella is an Italian salad that can be found on trendy bistro menus in the hot summer months. I'll share a secret with you: This salad was invented when times were tough, as a way to use up stale bread.

Essentially, you make a salad--traditionally with plenty of fresh tomatoes--toss it with a vinaigrette, then add cubed stale or toasted bread just before serving.

You can toast up a day-old baguette or fresh bread, depending on what you have in the kitchen.

The bread soaks up all the delicious juice from the tomatoes and the tangy vinaigrette. The rest of the summer-fresh vegetables add crunch and freshness.

NOTE: If you're watching your sodium intake, reduce the amount of feta or omit it.

TIP: Rub a garlic clove on the bread after toasting for instant, healthier croutons.

Olive Tapenade
Very Good 4.3/5
(54 ratings)

Tapenade is a traditional sauce or condiment from Provence, in the south of France. It adds a punch of flavor for very few calories. You can buy premade tapenade, but you'll spend more money and be consuming more sodium than if you made it at home.
