Instructions Checklist
  • Reduced Balsamic: combine vinegar, SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, rosemary and prune juice in a non-aluminum pan; bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until mixture is reduced to 1/4 cup. Remove and discard rosemary sprig. Cover and chill.

  • BENECOL® Fresh Mozzarella Biscuits: preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray a baking pan with vegetable cooking spray.

  • Combine the flour, SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut BENECOL® into flour mixture with a pastry blender until crumbly. Add chopped mozzarella and herbs; toss gently. Add milk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Using a large ice cream scoop, drop batter onto prepared pan.

  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden.

  • Vinaigrette Directions: pour boiling water over lemon zest in a small bowl; steep 3 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Set aside.

  • Combine shallots, garlic, and the champagne vinegar in a small bowl. Gradually add oils and lemon juice, whisking to form an emulsion. Stir in zest, chives, and 2 tablespoons SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener. Salt and pepper to taste.

  • Salad: toss arugula with 3 ounces lemon vinaigrette; arrange on a large platter around the outside.

  • Layer the slices of tomatoes and slices of warm Fresh Mozzarella Biscuits in the center of the platter.
