Oven-Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad

It's hard to find fault with a caprese salad. Unfortunately, in many parts of the country, tomatoes aren't at their best for much of the year. To make up for that inferior flavor, I like to give them a toss in maple syrup and balsamic vinegar and them in the oven. They emerge sweetened, flavorful, …
