Vinegar is a sour-tasting liquid that is mostly made from acetic acid and water. Vinegar is commonly used in salad dressings, but it can be used to add flavor to steamed vegetables, to poach eggs, or to perk up any can of soup or sauce.
- Store vinegar bottles in a cool, dry place, like a pantry.
- Sprinkle some vinegar, olive oil, and oregano over a fresh salad for your own salad dressing. It tastes better and is less expensive than buying pre-made dressings!
- Use vinegar in meat marinades to make them more tender.
Why It's Great
- Vinegar adds a sour flavor to foods and can often replace salt -- vinegar has no sodium!
