Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad with Apricots & Pecans
by inspiredrd on July 28, 2011
One of my favorite things about Instagram is following other foodies. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only crazy person who takes pictures of what I’m eating. Last week, the talented Jenny of Picky Palate shared a photo of a strawberry, goat cheese, and pecan salad she was about to eat at a restaurant. I had some goat cheese chilling in my fridge, so with inspiration from Jenny, I made my own salad. The flavor combination was exactly what I was hoping for. The tanginess of the goat cheese with the pecans and sweetness of the fresh fruit was perfect. This salad is simple enough to throw together for a quick lunch, and elegant enough to make for your next get-together.
I have been playing around with my new camera and trying to learn about food photography. What do you think so far? I also have an audience every time I work in the kitchen. See if you can spot him…
I have heard that you shouldn’t put pepper on food that you will be photographing because it can look like dirt. The photo above is before I added oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. The photo below is after. Can you tell a difference?
