Preparation

  1. Make the balsamic reduction: In a small pan, bring the balsamic vinegar to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 15–20 minutes, until the vinegar reduces and turns syrupy. Remove the pan from the heat and let the reduction cool completely. The reduction will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  2. Make the bowls: Cut the avocados in half and carefully remove the pits. Brush the avocado halves with 1 teaspoon lemon juice.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the mozzarella, tomatoes, remaining 2 teaspoons lemon juice, and the olive oil.
  4. Fill each avocado half with the tomato and mozzarella filling. Top with the flaky salt and the basil and drizzle with the balsamic reduction.
  5. Enjoy!
