Heirloom Caprese Salad

It's definitely summertime with these sweet and juicy tomatoes!

Ingredients

  • 2 medium heirloom tomatoes; sliced thick
  • 12 ounces of fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Drizzle of balsamic reduction
  • About 10 fresh basil leaves
  • Sprinkle of salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Arrange tomato and mozzarella slices on a platter. I also added the mini mozzarella balls because I had them left over and they are so cute! They make a great addition to the salad. Arrange basil leaves between the slices. Drizzle olive oil over the top of the salad, be sure you are getting a little bit on each slice. Do the same with the balsamic reduction.
  • End with a sprinkling of salt and black pepper. ****TIP: If you want to make your own balsamic vinegar reduction, its super easy! In a small saucepan, bring about 2 cups of 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--allow to cool!
