When you grow tomatoes and cucumbers and are looking for ways to use up your garden bounty, it's a no-brainer to pair them up in a salad. They're amazing added to a fresh garden salad, but why not let them be the star of the show?! This salad is like a celebration of summer with the fresh veggies taking the spotlight.
I was recently contacted by the folks that make Mandarano Balsamic Glaze & Sauce and asked if I'd like to try a bottle. Of course I say yes! I knew right away that I'd be using it on the salad. The sweet yet sour, thick, and rich sauce is is a high quality Balsamic Vinegar reduction made from a centuries-old family recipe and, get this, produced and bottled entirely in Modena, Italy using only authentic regional grapes. Sounds amazing right?
The Mandarano's Balsamic Glaze & Sauce was the perfect way to accent my Tomato, Cucumber and Onion Salad. The drizzled sauce was perfectly complimentary to the crisp veggies and creamy feta.
I'm going to use this stuff on everything. The Mandarano's suggest using it on meats and fish, roasted vegetables, eggs, ripe fruit (like strawberries, pears and apples), and even desserts (like chocolate, peanut butter and even ice cream!). YUM!
