Loaded with flavor and color and fresh from the garden!

 

Tomatoes

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

Fresh Basil leaves

The finishing touch…a drizzle of balsalmic viniagrette.

Balsamic Viniagrette:

Ingredients:

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!
