Tomato & Mozzarella Caprese

This isn't really even a recipe, I just wanted to post this as a reminder of how good, healthy and easy it is!  Especially in the hot spring/summer months.  This is such a refreshing side dish or snack.  On a Saturday it'd be super fun to have in the afternoon with a cold crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc.  ;)

Serves 2


1 large beefsteak tomato
1 large ball of buffalo mozzarella cheese
2-3 fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 Tbsp chopped red onion
Balsamic Glaze (found in the condiments section at the grocery store - use the thick glaze and not just balsamic vinegar!)


Slice tomatoes about 1/4 - 1/2" thick.  Place about a 1/4" thick slice of buffalo mozzarella on each tomato slice.  Sprinkle each tomato with salt, ground black pepper, basil, and onion.  Drizzle each tomato with balsamic glaze.  Cover and serve chilled.
