Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • about 1 dozen large basil leaves, plus a few small leaves for garnish washed and dried
  • 1 large peach (or 2 medium peaches) cut into 24 thin slices
  • 8 approximately (1/4-inch) slices fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese (about 6-ounces)
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Pour the balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Bring to a strong simmer and cook to reduce by about half. It might still look thin but as it cools, it'll thicken. This should take less about 5 minutes.

  2. Add a few basil leaves to the surface of 4 small serving plates, or larger serving plate. Place a slice of the mozzarella on top of the basil, followed by three peach slices. Drizzle with a bit of the glaze and add a basil leaf or two. Add another slice of mozzarella and three more peach slices to each one, and top with another drizzle of the glaze and a small basil leaf for garnish.

  3. Sprinkle each plate with a bit of freshly cracked black pepper.
  4. Serve immediately!
