Balsamic Vinegar

Bottle of Kowalski's Balsamic Vinegar

Our favorite sweet-tart condiment is imported from Italy, where the best balsamic in the world is made. It's a major kitchen multitasker that's good for salads, sauces and glazing everything from meats and veggies to sandwiches and appetizers. It's even great for desserts!

In addition to its use in traditional balsamic vinaigrette, this sweet, unique vinegar also pairs well with strawberries, pears, nuts and scones. Try it in these recipes:

Strawberry Balsamic Sundae

A Strawberry Balsamic Sundae is a unique way to serve this fantastic summer fruit. The balsamic brings out the beautiful red color of the strawberries and enhances their delicate flavor. It's a new take on an old favorite that's sure to sweeten your taste buds.

Berry Scones with Balsamic and Black Pepper Syrup:

An unexpected pairing of black pepper, balsamic and berries makes for a delicious treat. This updated version of strawberry shortcake is a perfect summer dessert.
