Fast, simple, healthy and delicious, this leafy Panzanella is the perfect dish for the height of summer!

- Tear the bread into bite sized chunks and leave out on a tray while you prepare the salad.
- Chop the tomatoes into bite sizes and put into a bowl, add the onion and peppers and season generously.
