2 Vidalia onions, grilled
1 Tbls. balsamic vinegar

¾ cup chopped whole tomatoes
1 Tbls. capers
2 Tbls. pine nuts, toasted
2 Tbls. chopped Italian flat leaf parsley
10 pitted and sliced kalamata olives

*In the photo I am serving it with Burrata cheese. Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese, made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella while the inside contains both mozzarella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture.
