Chef's Hat recipe: Balsamic Summer Tomatoes
5 fresh tomatoes (any type of sandwich tomato works well, but use heirloom if you can)
5 green onions, chopped, use green and white parts of the onions
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (you can use a flavored balsamic vinegar to add a different taste)
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Core and slice the tomatoes, and then place them on a serving platter.
Sprinkle the green onions over the tomatoes.
In a measuring cup or small bowl whisk together the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Pour over the tomatoes. Let sit for 3-5 minutes so the flavors blend together. Sprinkle with the cheese and serve immediately.
