|Summer Caprese Salad|
1-2 bocconcini (fresh mozzarella balls)
5 basil leaves
2 Tablespoons good olive oil
Balsamic vinegar reduction
finishing salt and fresh ground pepper
Slice the tomatoes and place on a platter. Slice the bocconcini and layer the slices in between tomatoes. Tear the basil leaves and strew over top of tomatoes.
Drizzle olive oil over all tomatoes and bocconcini. Top with Balsamic reduction ( I use a squirt bottle) and sprinkle with finishing salt and fresh ground pepper.
