Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) red wine
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) honey
  • Pinch each of salt and freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste
  • 4 fresh red, orange or yellow tomatoes, or a mix
  • 1/2 pkg Fresh Basil, leaves only
  • 6 fresh bocconcini cheese balls, sliced

Method

  1. To make the glaze, combine the vinegar, wine and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook about 5 min., until thickened and reduced by two thirds. Remove from heat and transfer to a small bowl. Allow to cool to room temperature, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, slice tomatoes and arrange on a platter or four plates, alternating with basil leaves and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle olive oil and cooled glaze overtop and serve.
