Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad
Tomatoes are everywhere, so ripe and delicious! I just can’t help myself but to make another tomato dish. I love this roasted tomato caprese salad. It is a spin on a traditional caprese salad, but with oven roasted tomatoes and, the tomatoes are marinated instead of having a drizzle of dressing.
The flavor of roasted tomatoes is absolutely AMAZING! They caramelize with the sweet flavor of the balsamic vinegar, so it’s like a party for your taste buds.
This recipe was adapted from and inspired by Ina Garten.

- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
- 8 ounces fresh mozzarella

- Preheat the oven to 275°F. Prepare baking sheet by lining with parchment or Silpat mat.
- In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, garlic, sugar, salt and pepper. Add olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Toss gently, with wooden spoons or hands to evenly coat all the tomatoes.
- Arrange the tomatoes on a prepared baking sheet, cut sides up, in a single layer. Drizzle with remaining olive oil mixture in your bowl.
- Roast for 2 hours until the tomatoes are concentrated and begin to caramelize. Allow the tomatoes to cool to room temperature.
- Cut the mozzarella into 6 slices less than 1/2-inch thick. Then cut them in slices in half.
- Layer the 2 tomatoes alternately with the mozzarella on a platter and scatter the basil on top. Serve at room temperature.

I can NOT wait for my garden to give me lovely red tomatoes so I can make this. It sounds utterly amazing!! The vinegar on the roasted tomatoes, my mouth is watering just thinking about how great its gotta taste!
Gorgeous! I noticed that yesterday's French Friday with Dorie was a caprese salad with strawberries. Think you'd ever toss some berries in your tomato salad?
