1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 (10oz) container cherry or grape tomatoes
mini mozzarella cheese balls (could use regular sized ball of cheese, and cut into bite-sized pieces)
fresh basil leaves, rinsed and cut in half (if large)
salt & pepper, to taste
1. In a small saucepan, bring balsamic vinegar to a boil, then lower heat to medium and simmer until it's the consistency of very thin maple syrup, about 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl and let cool.
2. Meanwhile, cut tomatoes in half. Thread a mini mozzarella cheese ball, basil leaf (fold in half if too large) and a tomato half onto a tooth pick. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle with salt & pepper, then drizzle cooled balsamic reduction on top.
