SOLARGARDENS@AVALON TASTING STUDIO WHITE BALSAMIC VINEGARS
White balsamics are a lighter version of our traditional darks. They traditionally carry sweet flavours, however, we carry some savoury white balsamics that will work very well in your favourite savoury recipes.
Cara Cara Orange Vanilla - Madagascar Vanilla & Cara
Cara oranges combine to delight the senses. Pair with fine chocolate, drizzle over fruit salad, in sparkling water, mixed drinks, or over yogurt and vanilla ice cream. It pairs well with fruitier olive oils, and is also excellent blended with our Butter olive oil. Use this heart healthy combination over oatmeal, cooked whole grain cereal, pancakes, or in salads.
Coconut - An ideal accompaniment to tropical dishes. Pair with our
Meyer Lemon, Persian Lime or Blood Orange for salad dressings or to marinate chicken or shrimp for the grill. Use with granulated sugar to rim your glass for a Piña Colada. Drizzle over pineapple pancakes or upside down cake.

Pink Lady apples? Then you're going to love our Green Apple White Balsamic!

We love this balsamic with our Rosemary or Oregano Extra Virgin Olive Oils. Combine them as a vinaigrette or use as a drizzle for chicken or seafood.
Honey Ginger - Honey and Ginger play well together and bring a
gentle, spicy heat, which balances perfectly with the moderate, natural acidity of our White Balsamic Vinegar. Pair with our Persian Lime Olive Oil. Mix an amazing marinade with our Honey Ginger Balsamic Vinegar & Toasted Sesame Oil or Garlic Olive Oil and soy sauce.
Jalapeno - Sweet, spicy and tart, just like you would expect from this
chile-infused condiment. Use this balsamic to light up your marinades, splash in a ceviche, spice up a salsa or blend into a dressing to top fruits. Unbelievably flavourful paired with our Persian Lime Olive Oil.
Jalapeno Lime - This luscious white balsamic starts with a light,
sweet and tart citrus twang – and ends with a jalapeño kick! Use to rim a margarita glass or add to lemonade or iced tea. Use to marinade steak, chicken or shrimp for fajitas. For dessert, thicken with powdered sugar and top your lemon bars.

based cocktails (margaritas or mojitos) or in lemonade... in vinaigrettes or seafood marinades... pair with our avocado oil as an addition to salsa or ceviche.
Mandarin Orange - This tasty balsamic is great poured over cheesecake, used in a vinaigrette or in Asian-inspired sauces. Not only is it good
drizzled over strawberries; you must try it over watermelon.

Chicken or steak fajitas. This is perfectly paired with an olive oil such as Persian Lime, Habanero, Basil, Blood Orange, Chipotle, Cilantro, Garlic, Lime, Toasted Sesame or Italian Herb.

cooking and grilling. Mix in a salad of greens with grilled and chopped chicken breast and diced pineapple. Pairs well with our Persian Lime, Jalapenos and Roasted Chili Infused Olive Oils.
Raspberry - A nice light version of our dark balsamic, you can use this
flavour in so many ways. Combine with strawberry preserves to create a fruity yet tart salad dressing... try drizzled into a salad with roasted walnuts and feta cheese... or combine with caramelized onions and our blood orange olive oil for a delicious sauce for pork or chicken.
Raspberry Cranberry - This flavour will remind you of
Christmas all year round! Add to Cranberry Sauce for some extra tang... blend with walnut oil or herbal tarragon olive oil for a delicious vinaigrette... or try as a dressing for a green salad with grilled chicken. Great with roast turkey, ham or beef. Whisk with one part Balsamic to three parts Extra Virgin Olive Oils for an amazing vinaigrette.
Traditional - Traditional balsamic is not a cooking ingredient —
heating it will kill its distinctive bouquet. Great for sprinkling on a fresh salad. Try putting a few drops on fresh berries, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, or creamy desserts like panna cotta, or vanilla ice cream.
Traditional balsamic can be used at the end of cooking. Excellent drizzled over veal scaloppini, risotto, or a stew. Also over grilled meats and seafood.
Tropical Passion – Bring the flavor of the islands with this vibrant burst of passion fruit to a fruit or chicken salad. Pair with Persian Lime, Blood
Orange, Jalapeno, Lemon or Lemon Pepper Olive Oils.
Watermelon - Great for summer salads. Try watermelon balsamic on feta cheese and arugula with toasted pine nuts salad. Drizzle over lemon sorbet.
