I promise it's not what you think, the salad is quite fresh...but there's one component that makes this salad unique, that's a little on the old side. Chef Mark Sapienza with Cafe Fleuri in Boston told Tonia's Kitchen about one his favorites, Panzanella Salad that features fresh tomatoes and stale bread! He told Tonia he uses fresh tomatoes, vidalia onions, a blend of basil, parsley and red vine vinegar. Mark then adds blanched yellow beans and the kicker...stale bread! He says the bread soaks up the oil nicely and provides a nice foil to the tomatoes!
