Sweet Tomatoes, Cucumbers & Cheese with Balsamic Glaze
- sweet tomato
- goat cheese
- balsamic glaze
- olive oil
- black pepper
Slice cucumber and sweet heirloom tomatoes into 1/4 inch rounds. Spread desired amount of goat cheese on cucumber rounds and line them up. Place tomatoes between each cucumber. Drizzle balsamic glaze and olive oil, sprinkle fresh pepper, serve.
You can usually buy balsamic glaze at a grocery store, but if not, here is a great recipe (source):
Combine 1 cup balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1 tablespoon soy sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thick and syrupy, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
You might notice that the picture is missing olive oil. I realized halfway through eating this that it was missing something. So I added 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and it made the dish complete, as well as 100 times better.
