Classic Caprese Salad with Balsamic Glaze

January 3, 2020

It’s hard to beat the classic flavor combination of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. However, this version adds another dimension by adding a rich and syrupy balsamic glaze instead of straight vinegar to top it off. This, combined with a really good quality extra virgin olive oil, is all you need to make this classic shine! Prep time: Cook time: 10 min. Serves 4


4 large ripe tomatoes 12 oz. fresh mozzarella, large ball 1 large bunch fresh basil, washed and dried 3 T. really good extra virgin olive oil. 1 cup of balsamic vinegar sea salt and fresh-cracked black pepper, to taste


Thoroughly wash and pat tomatoes and fresh basil dry. Slice tomatoes, working from top to bottom, into evenly sized slices approximately ¼” thick, and set aside. Discard the bottom and top slices. Cut fresh mozzarella into ¼” thick slices, as well.
