"Tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil drizzled with a sweet balsamic reduction and olive oil. Easy, impressive and delicious! Most grocery stores now sell prepared balsamic reductions. Surprisingly it's just as good!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

YUM! I only had grape tomatoes and small fresh mozzarella balls, so I went w/ it. The flavors were wonderful and the basalmic reduction really added something special to this...so light and refreshing! I will def be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
I made this for recipe group pick the week of May 27. I halved this which made it hard to keep track of when the reduction was at 1/3 but I ended up with about 1.5 oz. The honey was getting low so I only ended up with half and thought it could use more, but not much. I would probably go for 2/3 or 3/4 the amount rather than half. The cheese had next to no flavor. I won't make it again unless I can find an Italian buffalo mozzarella, even though the recipe doesn't specify. It was good, but for our taste it wasn't great.
This recipe was excellent. Now that I know how easy it is to make a Balsamic Reduction, I will be making it more often.
Easy, yummy, loved by all. What else is there to say?
First timer on the balsamic reduction. It took longer for the "reduction" part than 10 minutes for me. I was afraid I'd ruined it. But it tasted marvelous. My son and husband loved the salad and the reduction. I'll be doing this once a week until summer ends.
My sister has made this for years! It really is an impressive dish. Beautiful colors and textures. Very refreshing!
Excellent recipe, will make again. I made a salad with the ingredients by simply tossing them together about 30 mins before dinner. I got rave reviews from our company. Very fresh tasting.
One thing I didn't realize was how strong the kitchen smelled of vinegar while making the reduction. It made eyes water. If you can, open a window while making it or cook it well before company comes so you can air out the room. Just a side note, but it is very tasty.
Oooooh that was good! Be sure to buy good quality tomatoes from a local Farmer's Market if possible. Quality makes all the difference! I accidentally used 1/3 cup honey, but it was fantastic anyway!
