Caprese Salad

This month our challenge for our blog circle was to attempt food photography. I decided to share my very favorite “salad” recipe to go along with it.

Caprese Salad

Vine Ripened Tomatoes
Bocconcini (Fresh Mozzarella)
Fresh Basil
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar

In a small saucepan, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 10-20 minutes until the vinegar has reduced to a thick glaze. Remove from heat and cool. Slice vine ripened tomatoes and bocconcini. On a large platter, alternate and overlap the tomato slices, bocconcini slices, and basil leaves. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic glaze. Enjoy!
