Bread is not an ingredient that you may initially think of for a salad but there are many traditional Middle Eastern and Italian bread salad recipes.
This is a bread and vegetable salad called fattoush you will find all over the Middle East. Here it is made a full meal with the addition of tuna steaks.
This recipe is a great use for day-old bread which, when combined with onion, tomato, celery, cucumber and herbs, you get a delicious salad to match any Italian entree.
This is a perfect summer salad which is also a good use for leftover bread. The bread is even better if slightly stale as it stays crunchy when the dressing is added.
A great filling and flavoursome salad that everyone seems to love. At a stretch, you can use any bread you have around the kitchen for this.
In Lebanon, this salad is called fattoush. For a traditional touch, sprinkle the salad with a teaspoon of sumac, a purplish-red ground spice with a slightly sour, lime taste.
This is a wonderfully refreshing bread salad using pita bread, feta cheese, spinach, celery, cucumber, watercress and mint. Also great with Lebanese bread.
I love this salad which makes good use of left over bread. Any country crusty type bread around 2 day old, slightly past its best works great here. For vegans you can use Clearspring Organic Red Wine Vinegar.
A simple, rustic salad.
This is a very simple dish with great flavours. All three components make a great meal. You can substitute beef or chicken mince for the lamb if you wish.
This is a take on an Italian bread salad called panzanella. Traditionalists won't approve of the addition of cheese but it's delicious!
