The Magic of Balsamic

Balsamic vinegar is something special. I’ve always loved balsamic dressing; it has a caramelized taste that makes any salad come alive. When you toss it with veggies, it literally transforms the dish. It changes its natural taste, giving it an almost sophisticated flavor. We always have a couple of bottles of this rich, deep-brown Italian liquid in our pantry.

The Capers

Time to shine a light on these little green gems: capers. I know some people confuse them with olives, but capers are actually the flower buds of their own special bush. After being picked, they’re typically brined or salted, and man, do they bring a zesty flavor! They’re slightly more upscale than olives, and they add that special something, making this dish more than just your average roasted veggies.
