Panzanella is a Florentine salad of bread and tomatoes popular in summer. It includes chunks of soaked stale bread and fresh tomatoes, sometimes also onions, cucumbers and basil, dressed with olive oil and vinegar. It is also popular in other parts of central Italy. The 16th-century artist and poet Bronzino sings the praises of onions with oil and vinegar served with toast and, a page later, speaks of a salad of onions, purslane, and cucumbers. This is often interpreted as a description of panzanella.
