BlackBerry Caprese Salad with Blackberry Balsamic Reduction

BlackBerry Caprese Salad with Blackberry Balsamic Reduction


  • 1 pint Blackberries (Reserve some for the skewer and some for a reduction)
  • 1 heaped tablespoon Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 Lemon (Juiced)
  • 1 pint Small Fresh Mozzarella balls
  • Fresh Basil Leaves


Step 1
Set aside berries to add to your skewers. Next combine the remaining berries into a nonreactive pot and turn heat to medium high
Step 2
Add the juice of 1/2 a lemon to the berries and the light brown sugar. Mix well
Step 3
As this heats and starts to bubble, add in the tablespoon of Balsamic vinegar.
Step 4
I prefer to keep the heat at medium to a medium high to let the berries cook and the sauce to reduce. Take care not to burn your sugars with too high of heat.
Step 5
Let sauce cool. Assemble the skewers. Serve together.
