Summer is the time for this new collection of fruit vinegar based on white wine vinegar. They are from a company that sells products from Greece and elsewhere, and they offer versatility that goes well beyond the salad bowl. They are used, among other things, for grinding a mix of fresh berries or a cocktail, adding a new dimension to iced tea or a pan sauce for scallops or duck, and, with the tangerine flavour, to give ceviche citric acid. As for that summer salad, the tangerine or strawberry will add a touch of sweetness without the hint of balsamic.
