  • 2 large tomatoes on a vine
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 10 large basil leaves
  • Reduction:
  • ½ cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey


  1. Balsamic reduction: Whisk white balsamic vinegar and 1 tsp of honey in a small sauce pot, over medium-high heat, and bring mixture to simmer. Once it starts to simmer, turn the heat down to medium. Let vinegar slow simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture coats the spoon. It will take 7-10 minutes but please note, that it will start to thicken fast during the last couple of minutes so keep an eye on it. Set aside once it thickens.
  2. Slice tomatoes and mozzarella cheese into even slices and dice basil leaves. Layer tomato slices alternating with mozzarella slices and sprinkle basil over the top.
  3. Drizzle white balsamic vinegar reduction over all over the salad.
