See More Salad Recipe Ideas HereWhen you’re in the mood for some fresh crusty bread do you end up either baking or buying so much bread that later on you have no idea how you’re going to eat it all?

The solution to this vexing problem is to make this easy and delicious recipe for Tuscan Bread and Tomato Salad from David Lebovitz’s excellent food blog.

The salad recipe was adapted from his book, The Sweet Life in Paris where he shares his experiences enjoying the food and culture of the City of Lights.

Also known as panzanella, this hearty country bread tomato salad recipe is equally wonderful to serve at picnics and cookouts…the perfect way to celebrate these much awaited longer, warmer days.
