Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Makes: 4

1 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey
3 large tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 package fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Stir balsamic vinegar and honey together in a small saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the vinegar mixture has reduced to 1/3 cup, about 10 minutes. Set the balsamic reduction aside to cool.
