Loaded with flavor and color and fresh from the garden!
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Basil leaves
The finishing touch…a drizzle of balsalmic viniagrette.
Balsalmic vinegar, olive oil, 1-2 grated garlic cloves, a generous pinch each of salt and pepper.
I use an aged balsamic, the flavor and consistency are absolutely amazing. It makes dressing that will make you look like a rock star…seriously.
The ratio I’ve found that works the best is a 1 to 3 ratio (1 part vinegar and 3 parts olive oil). The same holds true for any acid that you are using whether it be vinegar, lime/lemon juice, etc. Just put the vinegar/acid into the bowl first and with a wire wisk stir in the oil. I also like putting all ingredients together in a small mason jar with a tight fitting lid and shaking the jar until all ingredients are well mixed. You can also store any left over dressing in the jar which is handy and a time saver!
