Ingredients

  • 4 on the vine Tomatoes
  • 1 lb Ball of Fresh Mozzarella
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 10 Fresh Leaves of Basil
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • Ingredients for the Balsamic Reduction:
  • 1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Slice the tomatoes into approximately 1/2 inch thick slices.
  • Put the tomato slices on a baking sheet, season them with the salt and pepper and top with the balsamic vinegar.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until the tomatoes are soft.
  • Prepare the balsamic reduction by heating the balsamic vinegar and the brown sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk until the brown sugar is dissolved and then heat until the sauce is reduced in half and thickened (approximately 8-10 minutes).
  • Then slice the mozzarella into approximately 1/2" thick slices and slice the fresh basil leaves.
  • Carefully place the tomatoes onto a place with a spatula, then layer them with the mozzarella. Top with the basil and drizzle with the balsamic reduction sauce. Enjoy!
