Roasted Mediterranean Caprese Salad

CaitlinCooks's picture
Here is my take on everyones favourite Caprese salad.
  Plum tomatoes 9 , cut into half, seeds removed
  Extra virgin olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Balsamic vinegar 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Sugar 2 Teaspoon
  Salt and pepper To Taste
For serving
  Kalamata olives 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), pitted (as required)
  Mozzarella cheese 250 Gram, cut into strips
  Basil leaves 1 Teaspoon, cut into strips

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. On a baking sheet arrange the tomatoes, skin side down. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle garlic, sugar, and salt & pepper to taste. Toss it well till all the tomatoes are coated.
3. Roast in the preheated oven for around 1 1/2 hour (2 hrs max) or until the tomatoes begin to caramelize. Check occasionally to avoid burning. If bubbling too much, reduce the heat of the oven.
4. Remove from the oven and allow the tomatoes to cool to room temperature before serving.

5. In a serving plate arrange the tomatoes with the mozzarella cheese slices. Sprinkle some kalamata olives and basil all over them. Serve the salad immediately.
