Panzanella Bread Salad Recipe

Panzanella Bread Salad Recipe

This Panzanella bread salad recipe has just been developed by Henry and Carla for our shops to serve as Autumn draws in. We thought it was too good a recipe not to share though. Should you have any of our bread in the bottom of the bread bin that’s too good to waste this is a perfect way to use it up.

To make this salad even better, make your own pesto using our great recipe.

If you love sourdough why not come on one of our bread making classes at our Cookery School in Chipping Sodbury.

Any of our sourdoughs would be great in this Panzanella bread salad recipe, we have been using the St Martin Sourdough bread.
