Tomato & Mozzarella with Balsamic Pearls

Andy Anderson !


Okay here we go… this is an appetizer that we all know and love… tomato and mozzarella, but with a twist.

We’re going to use some balsamic pearls to enhance the dish, and put it into another dimension…

It’s easy peasy and gives great presentation.

So, you ready… let’s get into the kitchen.
