If willing to share, could you post your recipe?

I like to use it with mozerella, basil, and tomato on a toasted cibatta bread. It is absolutely amazing. You should also make a mozerella, tomato, and basil pizza and put some of it on there.

It depends a little bit on what’s in it.

Some people like to dip bread in olive oil and balsamic vinegar, I like to do it with just the vinegar!  lol

It would work as a dressing for most salads.  You could also use it as a marinade or bake chicken in it.

@Mrs Christopher:  Depending what’s in it, you could heat it up, add some sugar and cornstarch, and use it as a glaze on roast pork tenderloin or chicken.

@Mrs Christopher:  Giada did a recipe with a balsamic vinegar reduction and drizzle over berries and ice cream. Can’t remember if she added sugar in it though 🙂

Get a packet of Good Seasons salad dressing mix and blend your BV, the seasoning packet, a spoonful or two of honey, and some olive oil.

Get a couple of sweet potatoes and a couple of regular potatoes and cut into thin slices. (You can leave the peels on or cut them off according to your preference). Begin frying them in a little bit of oil in a skillet. Once they begin to cook, stir the seasoned vinaigrette mixture in, cover, and let them cook through. (Roughly 1/2 hour). If you want, you can add some greens (kale works well) toward the end of cooking. Delicious!

I make salads with spinach, gorgonzola, sliced strawberries, and grilled chicken.  To top it, I make a viniagrette with blackberry ginger inused balsamic vinegar.

Use it as a bread dipping sauce if you add some minced garlic and chiffonaded basil, reduce it down to use as a glaze, dilute it with more olive oil and add in lemon zest to use as a chicken or pork marinade, keep it in a bottle in the fridge to just use as a salad dressing!

@Mrs Christopher:  Ah, just read your recipe and realized that I misunderstood the first time around: I thought you’d made your own balsamic *vinegar*. For the sweet-and-regular-potatoes recipe above, if you already have a fully-prepared balsamic vinaigrette with some brown sugar, skip the Good Seasons, honey, and olive oil and just use your dressing as-is to cook the potatoes, after you get them started in the skillet.

i LOVE boneless, skinless chicken breasts marinated in Balsamic vinegar(ette), it gives it the perfect tangy flavor!
