  1. Bring balsamic vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Boil until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Arrange tomatoes, cucumber, mozzarella slices, and basil leaves in an alternating pattern on a small serving platter until platter is covered. Drizzle olive oil over the salad. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons of the cooled balsamic vinegar on top. Serve immediately.

Excellent! The cucumber adds a refreshing twist to traditional caprese salad. Perfect on a hot summer day. Everyone enjoyed it and I'll be making it again.

Easy to make and tastes great!

Cut the slices of mozzarella and the tomatoes in half, width-wise. That way, you’re not left with a mouthful of cheese and the cukes come out a bit, which is a good thing.

Super light and tasty!
