Caprese Salad

My friend Annie LOVES this salad and I think of her whenever I make it.  With lots of free tomatoes floating around right now, this is a perfect time to make this easy and pretty salad.
You'll need:
Fresh Tomatoes sliced
Fresh Mozzarella sliced
Fresh Basil
Balsamic Vinegar (about 1 1/2 C for this size platter)
Olive Oil ~ probably about 1/2 C for this size ~ you want to lightly drizzle, not soak
Bring your balsamic vinegar to a boil over medium heat and simmer until reduced and thickened (saw that little trick here).  About 10 minutes.  Cool.
Arrange your fresh ingredients.  Drizzle with olive oil and the cooled balsamic vinegar, making sure that everything gets a little of both and serve.
