I’m over the foodie moon in love with Rachael Ray’s Balsamic Drizzle (Balsamic Reduction). It’s HEAVENLY on chicken but my favorite way to use it is shown here: a Balsamic-Drizzled Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Appetizer that is beautifully delicious (and deliciously beautiful) with pasta, pizza, or even on its own. It even makes a delicious (and filling) lunch all by itself.
One of the coolest things about this appetizer/lunch is it needs no recipe. It’s kind of refreshing to break away from “exacts” every now and then, isn’t it?
For this Balsamic-Drizzled Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Appetizer, simply round up your ingredients:
- Basil Leaves (fresh, of course)
- Rachael Ray’s Balsamic Drizzle
- Mozzarella Fresca (Fresh Mozzarella)
- Fresh Tomatoes
Layer your basil on the plate or platter, then arrange the tomato slices and slices of Mozzarella on top. Drizzle the entire production with the Balsamic Drizzle. This beauty makes a perfect appetizer, quick lunch, OR a replacement for tossed salad with pasta or pizza.
