2 blood oranges, juiced
1 cup Denissimo Dark Balsamic Vinegar
3 large local ripe tomatoes
1 ball mozzarella (roughly 8 ounces)
6 fresh basil leaves
1 ounce Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sicilian sea salt
Freshly cracked pepper


For vinaigrette, combine blood orange juice and Denissimo Dark Balsamic Vinegar together in a saucepan set over medium heat. Reduce for 15 minutes.
Slice each tomato into 3 1-inch slices.
Drain mozzarella and cut into ¾-inch slices.
Start to compose “towers” of caprese: place a tomato slice onto a plate, top with vinaigrette, lay 2 basil leaves to that they remain sticking out, then stack a slice of mozzarella cheese and season with a pinch of cracked pepper and Sicilian sea salt. Repeat. Top tower with Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
