This is the last painting in Food Dance (at least for now).  I hope you have enjoyed this series as much as I enjoyed painting it.

I had to look up as to why the tomato is called the love apple.  The answer below is from  And below that is a lovely salsa recipe from Southern Living.


Tomato is called 'love apple' due to its seductive red colour and its sensuous sweet flesh. It is referred to as the 'devil's fruit' by the Roman Catholic Church. It is believed to be fruit that was used by the serpent to tempt Adam and Eve.
