Panzanella, an Italian bread and tomato salad, is a great way to use up dry, day-old bread which soaks up the juices of the tomatoes. Two kinds of tomatoes offer a variety of textures and flavors--the firm sweetness of grape tomatoes and the tang of globe, or round, tomatoes, such as tomatoes on the vine. Be sure to stir in the basil just before serving so that it doesn’t discolor from the acid in the vinegar.
