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.

About Shannon @VillageGirlBlog

With my Husband, we raise our two sons and a nephew, three dogs, a cat, four chickens and a large garden on my just under an acre lot in a small village in Southeast Michigan. I am passionate about real food, and eating as local as we can without giving up olive oil, coffee, you know the necessities. Herb gardens and backyard chickens, reading, writing, photography are my other passions. I believe that things will work out eventually, the glass is not only half full but it is refillable.
