Caprese Salad

caprese saladLight lunch, snack, sophisticated appetizer, side dish, I love this classic combination of flavors.

Stacked in layers:

  • Tomato slices with S&P
  • Fresh Basil leaf
  • Fresh Mozzarella
  • Balsamic Vinegar Reduction Glaze

I used a store-bought Balsamic glaze, but I’d like to try making my own reduction one of these days. You simply slowly simmer a bottle of Balsamic vinegar till it reduces to about a quarter of the liquid you started with, it becomes a thick rich glaze. Some add a Tbsp of brown sugar to the vinegar as it reduces to heighten the sweetness. Yum!
