Recipe instructions Chopped Caprese Salad

  1. Step 1

    Add the balsamic vinegar and honey to a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Once it's reduced by approximately half and thickened to your liking (about 10-15 mins), remove from the heat. Be careful it doesn't get too thick, but a bit syrupy is good.

  2. Step 2

    Toss all ingredients. Drizzle with the reduction, adding a little at a time, tossing, tasting, and then adding more to your liking.

Optionally, add a tablespoon of olive oil for extra flavor, though it's not required. Enjoy Chopped Caprese salad within 24 hours of preparation but store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Before serving, drain any excess liquid.
