Strawberry balsamic vinegar

Hi, all. I was in Chicago/Oak Park last weekend and found a little shop in Oak Park where you can taste olive oils and balsamic vinegars before buying. I tried a taste of strawberry balsamic vinegar, and my mouth started to water from the aroma, before I had even tasted it. Of course, I bought a bottle ...

Now I need ideas for what to do with it. Whatcha got? TIA.

I think it would be good on a salad of mixed greens.

Does it contain sulfites? It is so hard to find a brand w/o sulfites.

Thanks for the idea, Green Lady. I don't know about the sulfites - I'll check the bottle when I get home (which will be late tonight - I have my photography class at 6).

Mix with olive oil and fresh herbs, use for a chicken breast marinade, and grill.

You didn't think of the obvious? Drizzle it over fresh strawberries! That's probably where they got the idea of strawberry flavored basalmic vinegar to begin with.

You can also sprinkle some on lamb chops and grill on top of some fresh rosemary sprigs.

I would reduce it and use numerous ways - as a bbq sauce for ribs, chicken, salads - it sounds awesome! A drizzle on duck would be good too!

I had a recipe for sweet-and-sour scrambled eggs that had strawberries in it. I wonder if it would taste good that way.
