Balsamic vinegar is often used as a salad dressing, but it can be used in many other ways to add depth and flavor to your dishes. Here are 5 unique uses for balsamic vinegar beyond salad dressing:
Glaze for Grilled Meats: Balsamic vinegar makes a delicious glaze for grilled meats like chicken, steak, or pork. Brush the meat with balsamic vinegar during the last few minutes of grilling to add a sweet and tangy flavor.
Roasted Vegetables: Toss vegetables like Brussels sprouts, carrots, or sweet potatoes in balsamic vinegar before roasting for a caramelized and flavorful dish. Our Spark balsamic vinegar with hints of plum and basil makes for the perfect pairing with vegetables.
Fruit Compote: Mix balsamic vinegar with sugar, fruit, and a pinch of salt for a tangy and sweet fruit compote that can be used as a topping for ice cream, pancakes, or waffles.
Marinade for Tofu or Vegetarian Dishes: Mix balsamic vinegar with olive oil, soy sauce, and herbs for a flavorful marinade for tofu or vegetarian dishes.
Reduction for Desserts: Simmer balsamic vinegar over low heat until it thickens into a syrupy consistency. Drizzle the reduction over desserts like vanilla ice cream, fresh berries, or even chocolate cake for a delicious and unexpected flavor.
Cocktails: Adding a splash of balsamic vinegar to cocktails is a great way to spice up your drink and add a punch of flavor. Try adding a splash of balsamic vinegar to your favorite cocktails or try our Balsamic Negroni Sbagliato!
