Description

This salad just screams Summer! And the balsamic dressing is to die for good!

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 cups Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 whole Cucumbers, Washed Well, Sliced With A Crinkle Cutter, Then Halved
  • 2 cups Fresh Mini Mozzarella Balls
  • 5 whole Basil Leaves, Roughly Chopped
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt

Preparation

In a small saucepan, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil. Cook for 10 to 20 minutes, or until balsamic has reduced and thickened like a glaze. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

In a bowl, combine cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, mozzarella, basil and kosher salt. Toss carefully with balsamic glaze. Refrigerate until serving. Serve cold.

These can also be plated as an appetizer instead of a salad. Just put 1 tomato, 1 cucumber half slice and 1 mini mozzarella ball on a toothpick! Makes a beautiful platter for your summer party!

I’m not sure if I did something wrong. I followed the recipe to the letter and it did not look like the picture. Mine came out very brown. Aside from the colour, the salad had a lot of zing and was refreshing.
