  • olive oil, for drizzling

  2. Place fresh basil leaves around the board and a small serving bowl with the balsamic glaze.
  3. Just before serving, drizzle the mozzarella and tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve with additional olive oil and sea salt, as well as toasted baguette slices.
