There are two kinds of people in life: sauce people and non-sauce people. I am a lifelong sauce person. No matter what I am making, eating or dreaming of making to eat, my first thoughts are of the complimentary sauces. And sometimes there are those meals that are simply vehicles for sauce, like sauce is for pasta.
Balsamic glaze is without question one of my all-time favorite sauces. I dare anyone who has ever had a sun-ripened tomato covered in aged balsamic to disagree. However, Balsamic is so much more than a Caprese salad. Balsamic glaze makes everything better, truly. It goes on essentially everything, from sweet to savory, and adds almost an umami element with its sweet, acidic flavor. From this moment forward, you’ll never touch a salad with watery balsamic again.
