Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes with Fresh Mozzarella | Sprinkle and a Dash

Incredible side dish to add with chicken, pork, pasta, or polenta.

Or

Toasted Sourdough, please!

It may be spring, but it was hot today, so I roasted it all in a broiler pan over low heat on my gas grill outside.  Guess, I could make this while camping then. Ahh.

I prefer fresh mozzarella for making this as opposed to the part- skim mozzarella we use for shredding on pizza.  Fresh has a softer texture if you haven’t used it before.

 

Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes with Fresh Mozzarella

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 2 pints grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or avocado oil (less if desired)
  • coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Drizzle oil all over a large rimmed baking dish.  Toss tomatoes into the dish and roll in oil.  Sprinkle with coarse salt (approx. a 1/2 teaspoon).

Roast tomatoes for 15 – 20 minutes stirring them every 5 minutes to ensure they are evenly roasted.  They will pop and juices should be jammy before adding the balsamic vinegar.

Drizzle vinegar over tomatoes and stir gently.  Roast for another 5 – 10 minutes until balsamic has reduced a little but hasn’t burned.

Sprinkle cubes of mozzarella among the tomatoes. Turn off heat letting cheese soften and melt for just a minute or two before serving.
