    Sprinkle the apples with a little lemon juice so that they do not blacken.

    Peel the fennel and slice it very thin. Place lettuce, apples and fennel in a bowl.

  • A Different Salad:

    “Tuscan Panzanella"

    A different Salad: "Tuscan Panzanella"

    The history of “Tuscan Panzanella” and how to prepare this simple dish which is perfect on summer days but also as a winter appetizer.

    We are talking about the “Panzanella”, a recipe full of history and curiosities. Many people attribute its birth to the peasant custom of wetting dry bread and mix it together with vegetables, a typical “poor” dish, made to recycle and not to waste stale bread. A sort of summer version of  the “Tuscan Ribollita soup”.

    Even Boccaccio speaks of "pan washed" in one of the Decameron novellas.

    To prepare the Panzanella is quick and easy:  Soak the bread in water and Chianti wine vinegar "The Chiantigiano" until it soften. Then squeeze out the water and crumble it in a bowl.

    Peel the cucumbers and cut in round slices. Cut the tomatoes and the onions in thin rings.

    Coarsely chop basil leaves, add all the vegetables to the seasoned bread. Dress with oil and salt, stir and put in the fridge to rest. Just before serving add some Chianti Wine Vinegar "The Chiantigiano" and garnish with a few leaves of basil.
