    Step 1

    Gather your ingredients.

    Step 2

    In a small pot, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil over medium to low heat.

    Step 3

    Cook for 10 to 20 minutes, or until balsamic has reduced to a thicker glaze. For us, it definitely took closer to 35 minutes.

    Step 4

    Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl and allow to cool. We put it in the fridge to speed up the cooling process a bit.

    Step 5

    Cut your mozzarella into thick slices. Set aside.

    Step 6

    Then, cut your tomatoes into thick slices. Set aside.

    Step 7

    Pull off all your basil leaves. Make sure to grab the prettiest of the bunch!

    Step 8

    Alter your tomato, mozzarella and basil pieces on a plate.

    Step 9

    First, drizzle with oil. Then, drizzle your balsamic reduction.

    Step 10

    Sprinkle on your salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
