Following the publication of my recipe for croutons made in-house, you must you doubt that I would use them quickly in a recipe, and I chose to make a panzanella tomato, cucumber ! I have to say, I had never tried and it’s just too good !! This is a salad hyper fresh, fast and easy to make, even counting the time to make their own croutons. Simply launch the croutons while you cut up the other ingredients and in a quarter of an hour it is ready !

I had some cherry tomatoes for a little more aesthetic on the plate, but you can use the variety that suits you or that you will find… With the green tomatoes, or a mixture of varieties, this can make a visual effect nice. And given that it also happens to be the season of soups, you can still use these croutons to improve them a bit ! ��

And you, you like them how to your panzanellas ? You put what vegetables in it ? Give me ideas because I want to test other versions, maybe a little more autumnal, the kind with the pumpkins roast…
