Summer Caprese Salad

The highlight of the summer season is glorious, fresh, ripe heirloom tomatoes. We look forward to them all year and the time is here! I picked most of these from our garden and a couple are from the farmers market. This fresh and easy salad is summer at its best.

Summer Caprese Salad
several fresh heirloom tomatoes
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.
