A Balsamic Summer Menu

Mariangela’s balsamic will make you rethink your idea of what a balsamic pairing should be. Mariangela makes her line of balsamic vinegars in Modena. All of her products are made with just one ingredient: organic grapes. From vineyard to bottle, Mariangela takes care of every single detail of her balsamic production. In fact, not only is she a vinegar maker, she is also a farmer and she cultivates all of her own organic grapes.

Mariangela’s most summery balsamic vinegar is, without a doubt, Balsamic Saba 6. Its viscous texture and sweet/acidic harmony leave your palate with a refreshing and lingering taste. Balsamic Saba 6 is the perfect pairing for so many of our favorite summer dishes.

Balsamic Caprese Salad

Fresh tomatoes and mozzarella are the easiest and most iconic pairing for a balsamic vinaigrette.
The thick agrodolce Balsamic Saba 6balances the acidity of the tomatoes and the milky mouthfeel of mozzarella.

Balsamic Onion Frittata

Nothing enhances the flavor of frittata like onions cooked in Balsamic Saba 6.
The recipe comes from Mariangela herself, she gave it to us during our last visit to La Cà dal Non. The recipe is simple and the result is rich and aromatic.

Balsamic Fruit Salad

Take your favorite seasonal fruit, like peaches and strawberries, and boost their flavors with a drizzle of Balsamic Saba 6.
You’ll get a sweet touch, an acidic note, and an explosion of fruitiness.

Cheese and Balsamic

This one is for people who love umami. Savory and nutty wedges of Vacche Rosse Cheese meet the lush drops of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.
In Emilia Romagna this cheese pairing is THE dining al fresco essential.
