  1. Carefully wash and slice ripe red tomato fresh from the vine.

    Arrange on bed of fresh spinach. Top with fresh basil, grated mozzarella cheese, and sprinkle with olive oil.

    Ecco:

    Oooh, looks yummy! I love everything in that....I might even add a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar...Very nice shot, Pa. You should post that in the recipe thread in the General forum!
     
  5. Actually, in Italy they don't use spinach. That is my wife's addition.

    So you can be a purist and use only "pomadore, basilico e mozzarella di buffalo" (the original is made from buffalo milk).
     
  6. Great look to this image and it makes me wish it were sitting in front of me. Yummmmm
     
  7. Pa that look really good.

    Crystall you can indeed replace the spinach with romaine salad. In the recipe from Harry's Bar in his insalata di pomodoro E mozzarella he use: tomato, mozzarella, romaine salad, olive oil, red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper and strips of red bell pepper.

    Very appetizing, Pa. You have quite the flair for shooting foods.
     
  9. Dubbly yummy!!
     
  10. Getting very hungry now! That is one of my favorite salads. I especially like it with focacia (sp). Food photography has a fatal flaw...it makes you very very hungry. :lol:
     
  11. Maybe we need another category for food pictures :lol: (!).
