- 3 large tomatoes (cut into 1/2-inch slices)
- 1 package fresh mozzarella cheese (cut into 1/4-inch slices)
- 6-7 pieces of fresh basil leaves
- Ground black pepper
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Arrange alternate slices of tomato and mozzarella cheese decoratively on a serving platter. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper, spread fresh basil leaves over the salad, and drizzle with olive oil and the balsamic reduction.
Balsamic reduction preparation:
Stir 1 cup of balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup of honey together in a small saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the vinegar mixture has reduced to 1/3 cup, about 10 minutes. Set the balsamic reduction aside to cool.
