Perfect Summer Salad: Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella

Pin It
I don't recall if I mentioned it here, but a few months ago, I spent a small fortune on fancy balsamic vinegar. I chalked it up to helping the economy, but for months could not go through with actually opening the pricey bottle. What type of meal deserved to be drizzled with this syrupy nectar? Should this be saved for special occasions, or secretly sipped straight from the bottle in the middle of the night? These very important questions have been filling my head.
Then last weekend we picked pretty garden tomatoes and colorful basil, and I knew it was time to pop open the balsamic. I made a quick, layered salad with the addition of mozzarella, and drizzled the vinegar over the top. Needless to say it was simple and amazing. Everything tasted fresh and the balsamic was sweet and rich. We ate the entire platter between the two of us.

  1. I should hope you ate the whole thing between you two. There are starving children in China. And Africa. And America. Don't be wasteful, KK.
