A note about serious food allergies

With winter now past us (fingers-crossed), we created a fresh mozzarella, basil and heirloom cherry tomato salad to celebrate the season and get you thinking about warmer months ahead. Mozzarella hails from southern Italy, and its name is derived from the method in which it is made. Mozzare means ‘to cut’ in Italian. Drizzled with a balsamic reduction, this salad is a perfect combination of flavors, textures, and freshness for your next spring meal.

    Make the Dressing

    Pour balsamic vinegar in a small sauté pan over medium heat. Bring the heat to a boil without reducing the heat on the stove then lower heat so that the boil reduces to a simmer. Stir occasionally until the vinegar has reduced by at least half. Don't try to increase the heat, unless you want to be left with a stiff, hardened mess.

  • Step 3 - Compose the Ingredients
