CAPRESE BITES (Adapted from

1 cup good balsamic vinegar
cherry or grape tomatoes
mini mozzarella cheese balls (could use regular sized ball, and cut into bite-sized pieces)
fresh basil leaves, cut in half if large
salt & pepper

Bring balsamic vinegar up to a boil in a saucepan, then lower heat to medium and simmer until it’s the consistency of very thin maple syrup, about 10 minutes.

Pour into a bowl and let cool.

Cut tomatoes in half. Thread a mini mozzarella cheese ball, basil leaf and a tomato half onto a tooth pick. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Sprinkle with salt & pepper, then drizzle cooled balsamic reduction on top.
