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.
Tuscan bread salad, also known as panzanella, is comprised of toasted ciabatta bread, tomatoes and cucumbers in a tangy vinaigrette.
