My January Throwdown Entry......Recipe

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My heartfelt thanks to the three members who voted for my entry......really appreciate the support.

This appetizer tastes as good as it looks. Normally served during the summer months when tomatoes are at their best, however, always a hit.

Tomato Pine Nut Appetizer


Ripe Tomatoes cut into slices
Smoked Pine Nuts
Smoked Mozzarella thinly sliced
Fresh Sweet Basal chopped and for garnish
Scallions chopped
Crumbed Feta Cheese


50/50 mixture of Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar with a "glob" of French Mustard blended to a smooth consistency.

Place tomatoes and finely sliced mozzarella onto a platter. Sprinkle chopped scallions, chopped basal, pine nuts, and crumbled feta onto the tomatoes and mozzarella. Sprinkle on dressing and garnish with a sprig of basal.

Delicious and easily prepared............Enjoy!

Looks great. And I'll bet you're right that they would be even better with a "real" summer tomato!

You're guess is as good as mine......I was a bit disappointed but there were great entries to compete with.

Thanks for the kind words, John
