I love Caprese salads but sometimes they can be a little bland. The classic recipe calls for just a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkling of salt and pepper to flavor the salad, so as not to mask the delicate flavor of the mozzarella, but I like to add just a bit more oomph. Here's how: I start by sprinkling the tomatoes with a pinch of sugar, which brings out their natural sweetness. Whisk together balsamic vinegar and honey in a small saucepan.

Combine the balsamic vinegar and dark brown sugar in a saucepan. Cook the mixture over medium-high heat stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved. Turn the heat down to a low simmer. What's even easier is the supremely simple balsamic vinegar dressing that lightly coats each pasta noodle, sweetly flavoring each tangy bite. In a small saucepan bring balsamic vinegar to a simmer over medium.
