Caprese salad came onto my radar in the past 5 years or so. I love it but I find it's not always on the menu at restaurants. It's so easy to make but for some reason, I never tried. My Mom gave me some fresh basil from her garden yesterday though and it popped into my mind to have for dinner. I had just bought tomatoes at the Farmers Market and I knew I had some mozzarella cheese. I quickly made a balsamic reduction and voila, half of our dinner was ready. The balsamic reduction was the hardest--all that whisking! But well worth it.
