Bruschetta Caprese




I feel like one of those fancy New York bloggers publishing this, as it isn't really a recipe but just a snack, or a quick summer lunch, and mostly it isn't something new and original, probably all the Italian bloggers are giggling too: hahaha Caprese salad, how original!


But I just got a new iPhone and I couldn't wait to try the camera out, after all I seem to use my phone as much as a camera as for making calls! For the 'recipe': well, just toast some nice crusty bread, rub with garlic if you like (not really necessary for a Caprese though!) top with mozzarella, tomatoes and basil, and then sprinkle with salt and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. The basil and the black and yellow tomatoes are from my garden, the red ones aren't, no more tomatoes now, but they are still cheap in the shops, and relatively tasty, so I hope to enjoy this kind of salad (or bruschetta) for a few more weeks yet!

  1. I'm loving your photography from your iPhone. I take all of mine on my ipad then they stream to my Mac Mini where I manipulate them via iPhoto. I know I have to bite the billet one day and get my digital SLR out, but at the moment I have too many other things to work on being a 'newbie'.
    P.S. I can just taste the basil and mozzarella looking at the above.

  4. This is one of my favourite salads when the tomatoes are sweet. Alas now they're really not that flavoursome here but I can't wait until summer!

    1. Yes summer has gone out of the tomatoes, but the little ones are still ok. Sadly even in Summer tomatoes here never taste like the ones in Italy, must be the climate, the soil… I don't know, but at least the number of variety is growing :-).

  6. What beautiful photos! I use my phone as a camera just as much as (actually more come to think of it!) using it as a phone.
