Candy Cane Caprese Charcuterie
- 8oz Ounces Fresh Mozzarella Cheese (Sliced)
- 3 Tomatoes
- Basil Leaves
- Balsamic Glaze
You can make your own balsamic glaze if you prefer. Pour 2 cups of balsamic vinegar into a saucepan and heat it up over medium heat. When it starts to bubble, turn the heat down to low. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes to reduce it down. You should end up with about 1/2 cup once you’re finished. Let cool before using.
Slice the tomatoes.
Start at the top end of the candy cane shape and create the candy cane stripes by alternating a slice of mozzarella with a slice of tomato until you get a big candy cane shape.
Place fresh basil leaves around the candy cane
Serve with balsamic and crackers.
