Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad

Caprese Salads with fresh roma tomatoes, basil, mozzarella cheese and a balsamic glaze are amazing anytime of year, but especially at the end of the summer when you can use your tomato and basil bounty from your garden.  If you don’t garden, you can still use fresh tomatoes from Safeway, on sale for just $.97/lb.  to make this Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad.

Roasting the tomatoes imparts a sweetness and a slight smokiness that you don’t get from the fresh tomatoes.  I made this as a salad for my family  and it was definitely different and everyone enjoyed it!  Especially my husband who doesn’t care for tomatoes at all.  The tomatoes have a completely different texture and flavor profile when they are roasted.  It’s definitely a winning combination.

To make a balsamic glaze, simply heat 2 TBSP of balsamic vinegar over medium heat until it reduced by half.  Cool then drizzle over the salad.

Try it and let us know how you like it!

Sale ingredients used: Roma Tomatoes – $.97/lb, Galbani Fresh Mozzarella 8 oz – $2.99 or 16 oz is $3.99.  I used the Star Balsamic Vinegar that I picked up for $.50 last month.
