Pour balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan and simmer for 6-8 minutes to reduce and thicken, swirling occasionally. Add to a small pitcher or squeeze bottle. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Place each tomato on a cutting board, stem side down. Using a paring knife, cut three evenly spaced slices crosswise without cutting all the way through. Set aside.

Cut each mozzarella ball into slices, approximately ¼-inch thick. Insert a mozzarella ball and a basil leaf in each tomato slit and place on a serving platter. Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic reduction, salt and pepper, to taste. Enjoy!
