Crispy patties filled with nutrients and flavor are served with a light and tasty lemon sauce. Capers add a great texture to this simple salad, and their saltiness are balanced by the balsamic reduction.


Shape mixture into patties, whatever size you like, then fry both sides until crispy and golden.


Toss together the tomatoes, oil and capers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and divide into 2 servings.


Boil the balsamic vinegar until it is reduced to a thick syrup. Then drizzle it warm over your plated salads.
