Ribeye and Panzenella
Nothing better than a Rib Eye steak medium rare. Along side is my version of Panzenella. Pretty basic.
Chop up what tomatoes you have...particularly ones that are very soft. Add a smashed clove of garlic that you'll pick out before serving. Add 1/2 red onion thinly sliced. Add about 1/2 cup or less of olive oil.
I went out into the herb garden and just picked what looked good. Parsley, chives and oregano. Chop finely and add to bowl. Mix well and allow to sit for at least an hour.
If you have stale bread all the better, but if not tear up a french loaf and lightly brown under the broiler. I had stale bread and did not toast.
When ready to serve, cut up some cucumber add to bowl. Salt and Pepper to taste and add bread. Coat with the juices and serve at once.
You can scale this from a dinner for one to a neighborhood block party.
