Add tomatoes, bread, onion, parsley and black olives into a salad bowl.
Toss through with 3 tablespoons of Everyday Cider Tonic, 6 - 7 tablespoons of the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix well.
Allow Panzanella to sit for 20 minutes before serving so that all the flavours and juices combine.
Optional - I like to add a tablespoon of home made pesto on top for extra punch and flavour!!
