What is Balsamic Glaze
I highly recommend you try making simple Balsamic glaze at home. It’s a simple technique of heating balsamic vinegar to thicker consistency.
It is also called a balsamic reduction. When you heat up balsamic vinegar, it reduces from watery texture to sauce type thick texture. It brings out immense flavor. You want it thickened to a chocolate syrup consistency.
It turns to very dark in color and has deep concentrated flavor. It thickens more as it cools down. Using a spoon you can drizzle it over the salad.
This salad tastes the best when served fresh. Do not prepare it too early before serving. Also do not store prepared salad for too long.
What can you serve with Peach Tomato Caprese?
I love to to pair this salad with Air Fryer Garlic Toast for scrumptious lunch. You can also serve it with Avocado Toast for satisfying breakfast / brunch. For light and refreshing meal full of summer vibes, pair it with Zucchini Fritters or Italian Zucchini Noodles.
For Pasta / Salad combination serve it with Penne Pesto Primavera, Penne Rosa or Lemon Basil Pasta. A light Asparagus Broccoli Soup or Carrot Ginger Soup also works.
Fresh Mozzarella cheese is a classic to this salad. A close second option would be burrata which is creamy and mild in flavor.

Bring to a low boil, then reduce heat to keep at a simmer for 12-15 minutes. Stir occasionally until reduced by half and lightly coats the back of a spoon. It will thicken more as it cools.
