Preparation Instructions

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.
Wash 2 cups cherry tomatoes, slice cucumbers and do a rough chop on your basil leaves.
In a bowl, combine cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, drained Mozz balls and kosher salt. Toss carefully with balsamic glaze. Serve cold.

  1. Looks delicious, but it isn’t something I’d order on my own…unless I was having lunch with you…=) I MUST try some fresh mozzarella one day soon.
