Ingredients

  • 10 ounces cherry or cherub tomatoes chopped in half
  • 8 ounces whole milk mozzarella cherry sized. Chopped in half or fourths
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil chopped
  • 1/2 cup good quality balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add the balsamic vinegar and honey to a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Once it's reduced by approximately half and thickened to your liking (about 10-15 min), remove from the heat. Be careful it doesn't get too thick, but a bit syrupy is good.
  • Toss all ingredients except for the reduction in a bowl. Drizzle with the reduction, adding a little at a time, tossing, tasting, and then adding more to your liking.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

note: you can also add 1 tablespoon of olive oil if you'd like the added flavor, but it's not necessary
