SUNSET® Kumato® Caprese Salad

This salad is remarkably simple, but impressive in its presentation! Dazzle your friends with this dish as a gourmet starter to a meal.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

4 SUNSET® Kumato® tomatoes
4 medium size fresh mozzarella balls (the kind that are packed in water), drained well
1 small bunch fresh basil
4 Tbsp purchased balsamic glaze*
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
coarse sea salt & fresh cracked black pepper

Directions

Cut each tomato into 4 slices. Cut each mozzarella ball into 3 slices.
On individual plates, stack the tomato slices alternating with the mozzarella slices and basil leaves – starting and finishing with a tomato. Reserve extra basil for garnish.

Drizzle each tomato mozzarella stack with 1 Tbsp of the balsamic glaze and a 1/2 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Garnish with additional basil.

Chef's Notes

*Balsamic glaze is found in many well-stocked grocery stores and specialty food shops. If you are unable to find it, then you can make it easily. Combine 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 Tbsp sugar in a small pan. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Reduce heat to low and slowly simmer for 10 to 12 minutes to reduce liquid to about 1/4 cup or a light syrup texture. Watch carefully so as not to over-reduce. Store covered at room temperature until needed.
