our experience making Fresh Tomato & Mozzarella Salad

The key to this recipe is the balsamic glaze. In the last few years it has become available at the grocery store made by several major manufacturers. In the past, it was something you had to reduce yourself which is a bit out of my skill set.

It is one of those things that I can eat almost anytime. It is a cool summer lunch or a nice side dish for dinner. Even my oldest son has started eating it regularly. I like that I can make just one serving or a large amount {which we keep in the fridge fine overnight} for the family.
