Caprese salad is the perfect combination of colors and flavors. It instantly brightens up an almost-boring “all I could think to make is spaghetti” night. Plus, with tomato season here, and basil aplenty in my garden, it’s impossible to not crave this delicious salad.
I drizzled a balsamic reduction over the top of the salad, which you can make yourself or buy at the grocery store. Bertolli makes a decent bottle of the pre-made stuff. Otherwise, pour 1/4 cup of Balsamic vinegar in a saucepan and cook on medium heat until reduced by half.
-2 Large Ripe Tomatoes, sliced
-8 Ounces Fresh Mozzarella, sliced
-Fresh Basil Leaves
-Drizzle of Olive Oil
-Drizzle of Balsamic Reduction
Assemble the tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil leaves on a platter. Drizzle a little olive oil on top, followed by the balsamic reduction. Eat and enjoy!
