Elf, as soon as my tomatoes are ready I will do your salad..I love everything that is in it,I'd thought about adding some Coppa or some crisp Pancetta, but a growling tummy prevailed. Glad you like this sammie..The spread is almost like or is a pesto and with the f/p a snap.

Who knew such few simple ingredients could produce such a heavenly and unforgettable experience?!

I've made the same sandwich a few times already since returning home, always to startled gustatory delight by first-time tasters. Lesson I learned is, take it from the Italians -- a few simple excellent-quality ingredients is all you need for a fantastic sammie! :-)
Hi Chopstix,
nice to see you here.
I agree, fancy and loaded with things doesn't always mean wonderful..I find the simple things that our neighbors and my grandparents made were so flavorful and good, not much could beat them...I'm use to basil and tomatoes,garlic, onions lettuce and such all from grams garden..Fresh, just picked flavor beats a jar pretty much all the time.Not that it's bad to use jared foods. Sometimes we have to..I suppose love of your family and friends puts part of the yummy taste in what we fix

Hi Kadesma, try the same sandwich only with feta cheese. Maybe add a few bits of chopped black olives as well.

Feta cheese is good in sandwiches and you don't need a huge amount because it's such a powerful flavour - great if you're trying to keep calorie consumption down.
