Traditional Caprese Salad and Caprese Skewers with Balsamic Reduction

My caprese salad and skewers are very simple but make an impressive presentation.  Simply cut fresh mozzarella cheese and tomatoes to uniform thickness and layer with a leaf of fresh basil.

For the skewers simply take a tooth pick and put a fresh ciligene sized fresh mozzarella ball halfway down, followed by a piece of basil and a fresh cherry tomato on the top.

For the balsamic vinaigrette reduction, realize that however much balsamic vinegar you begin with, it’ll be reduced by about 75%.   For this recipe I used about 2 cups of vinegar before I began reducing it.  Just simply put the vinegar in a pan on the stove over a medium-low heat, stirring frequently until it reaches the desired consistency.
