Tuscan Wild Tomato Panzanella

Tuscan Wild Tomato Panzanella

This Tuscan Wild Tomato Panzanella with a tangy and salty lemon-dulse-basil Dressing, capers & roasted pine nuts simply bursts with flavour. It’s one of my favourite dishes. It’s bright and colourful, fresh and summery. This is my take on the classic Italian bread and tomato salad but without the bread.  I have used oat cakes instead which add an interesting texture and a hearty flavour. You can serve the Tuscan Wild Tomato Panzanella as beautiful side-dish, starter or as a light lunch. I recently served the Panzanella at the 7DayRecharge book launch and this dish was one of the favourite dishes amongst our guests.
