Caprese Salad

Ahhhhhh, summer at last. I picked up some fresh mozzarella cheese today at the farmer's market as well as few nice looking tomatoes and knew this would be great first course tonight. I like to bring my balsamic vinegar to a boil and let it simmer for about 20 minutes so it reduces and thickens a bit. I think it clings to the tomatoes and cheese better. Enjoyed this out on the deck with a nice red wine, followed by grilled porterhouse steaks and asparagus. Summer has officially started!

  1. Oh my--this is beautiful! And I like the tip about heating the balsamic--who knew?? Sounds like a grand summer dinner.
