I miss Photoshop and having a Mac…this photo needs some serious toning help. Just had to put that out there.
Regardless, this is what I have been eating for the past 2 days. The best Italian sandwich I have had since being in Italy. Meet the fresh Prosciutto and Mozzarella sub from Lola’s. I would suggest adding roasted red peppers and basil.
What is prosciutto you may wonder? Prosciutto (English pronunciation: /prəˈʃuːtoʊ/,) is an Italian word for ham. In English, the term prosciutto is almost always used for a dry-cured ham that is usually sliced thin and served uncooked; this style is called prosciutto crudo in Italian and is distinguished from cooked ham, prosciutto cotto. (thank you Wikipedia)
It is wonderful–if you like ham. If not this would be good with just fresh mozzarella, basil, and red peppers. I really think this may be created at home–but with purchasing all the ingredients it may just be worth dishing out 9.00 bucks for the sub if you live in Greenville. By the way all you local Greenvillians, Greenvilganders?.. Go check out Lola’s off of Pelham (http://www.upstatefoodie.com/restaurants/detail/lola-s-a-taste-of-italy-greenville-sc) it is good Italian…which is rare in my opinion.
If you’re not near Gville it would be easy to recreate.
-1 fresh loaf crusty bakery bread
-Good quality prosciutto ham (maybe 5 slices)
-roasted red peppers
-Fresh mozzarella sliced (get the kind in the ball form and slice it at home)
-a light vinaigrette made with balsamic and EVOO for dipping or spread on the bread or..gasp! both. 🙂
-Enjoy and pretend you are in Italy–Buono!
