Caprese Salad
Health Highlights


2 cup Balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp Black pepper (freshly ground)
20 leaf Basil, fresh
12 slice Mozzarella cheese (Sliced Thick)
2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
3 medium Tomato (Sliced Thick)
1/2 tsp Salt


In a small saucepan, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil over medium-low heat. Cook for 10 to 20 minutes, or until balsamic has reduced to a thicker glaze. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl or cruet. Allow to cool.

Arrange tomato and mozzarella slices on a platter, put basil leaves between the slices. Drizzle olive oil over the top of the salad, getting a little bit on each slice. Do the same with the balsamic reduction. Sprinkle salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Store extra balsamic reduction in fridge for a later use.
