My January Throwdown Entry......Recipe

Discussion in 'SMF Throwdowns' started by bandcollector, Feb 7, 2010.

  1. 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!

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