Give your classic Italian caprese salad a twist by stacking it on crispy onion rings! Perfect for a light lunch or a delicious appetizer.
14ouncesfrozen onion rings
8ouncesof fresh mozzarellabuffalo style
1ounceof fresh basil
3/4cupof balsamic vinegar
Extra virgin olive oilto garnish
Preheat the oven according to the frozen onion ring package directions, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Once the oven is preheated, place the frozen onion rings on the baking sheet and bake according to package directions.
While the onion rings are in the oven, place the balsamic vinegar in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened and able to coat a spoon (the consistency of maple syrup). Set aside to cool.
Cut the mozzarella into rounds. Rinse the basil and pat dry. Slice the tomatoes and allow extra liquid to drain away.
When the onion rings are done, let cool slightly before handling. To make the stacks, nest smaller onion rings inside the largest onion rings to make a base. Stack the cheese on top, then add a layer of basil leaves, then top with a tomato slice. Continue making stacks until you have used up all the onion rings. If you have broken onion rings, you can use toothpicks to make miniature kebabs with pieces of onion ring, tomato, basil, and cheese.
Arrange the stacks on plates, then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar reduction. Garnish with a sprinkle of chopped basil, then serve.
