“This tomato-cornbread salad -- a riff on panzella, the Italian peasant classic designed to revive stale bread -- relies on ripe, juicy tomatoes to moisten and flavor the dry bread. After salting the tomatoes, give them a little time to release their juices.”

This recipe goes well with a Mexican themed dinner. I served this with chicken enchiladas and spanish rice. It was a hit. Make sure to bake the corn bread until it is crispy, or it will get too mushy. For best results, add the corn bread just before serving.

This was excellent. I used a batch of cornbread off the corn meal box, 4 large vine-on tomatoes (can't wait for my garden tomatoes to ripen!!), doubled the cilantro, and only used one avocado. Also had no red wine vinegar so used cider vinegar instead. This is a great recipe to modify for what you have on hand; I can't wait to make it again.

I really liked this. I was making for only me for lunch so I scaled it was down and pretty much just eyeballed everything. I used some green onions that I have instead of the red onion and I left out the cilantro because I didn't have any. Really nice, summery, simple, and pretty healthy lunch :)
