Caprese Salad with Balsamic Pearls

image

Now, I’m not into molecular style cooking. It doesn’t lend itself to a busy household and my lack of patience and skills!

However, last week I managed to find some balsamic vinegar pearls in an iconic Perth European food supplier. I couldn’t say no! They also happened to have some amazing fresh mozzarella so clearly Caprese salad had to be on the menu.

If you can’t find pearls, drizzle a little balsamic vinegar over after the oil.

Serves 4-6.

Ingredients

250g fresh mozzarella ball, drained and dried on kitchen towel and sliced thinly

4-6 large tomatoes, sliced thinly

6 basil leaves, torn

a little extra virgin olive oil

freshly ground pepper

1-2 teaspoons balsamic pearls

Method

Layer the tomato, a piece of basil, slice of mozzarella in a dish and repeat until all the cheese is used.

Drizzle over a little olive oil and season with pepper.

Sprinkle over the balsamic pearls and serve.
