Tea Sandwich: Tomato, Mozzarella, & Basil

0213_tea_sandwich_mozzarella_tomato_basil.jpg

A classic Caprese with a drizzle of balsamic creme (balsamic reduction). I picked up all the ingredients at Eataly.

A few notes:
- I cut the focaccia in half, lengthwise since there would have been too much bread if I hadn't.
- Use smaller tomatoes so they'll fit nicely on each tea sandwich.
- Instead of whole basil leaves, another option is to chop them into thin slices and sprinkle over tea sandwiches.
- Use a paper towel to get rid of any excess liquid from the buffalo mozzarella.
