I used to buy a balsamic cream that was insanely expensive. When my dad came to visit me he tried it and he totally fell in love with this dressing. He bought 5 or 6 jars to take them to Spain with him. Once he finished them, he begged me to bring him more bottles next time I would visit him. At around 4 euros the bottle of 350ml it kind of hurts… So I decided to make it myself (yeah, I´m also wondering why I didn´t though about that earlier…). I mean, it´s was just 2 ingredients: balsamic vinegar and grape syrup…it couldn´t be that hard. Since grape syrup is quite pricey I decided to go for sugar beets syrup since that one is way cheaper. Next; I had to decide the ratio…I will just go for ½ balsamic vinegar and 1/2 syrup. And done. It tastes just like the store-bought one but for like ¼ of the price. It´s a win win!
So simple yet so delicious. This sweet balsamic dressing is now our staple oil-free dressing. And as you read before it couldn´t be easier. All you need is 2 ingredients and 1 minute to make it.
