Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

Read on for tips and substitution ideas on how to make this recipe, and how to avoid making it a disaster.

What is the difference between balsamic vinegar and white balsamic?

While the traditional balsamic vinegar is cooked and concentrated on producing a rich flavor with a deep and dark color, the white balsamic vinegar is cooked at high pressure to prevent caramelization, giving it a golden color and a gentler flavour.

Substitutions

  • This salad can be made vegan by removing the feta and honey. 
  • For the vinaigrette, you can either use red wine vinegar or rose balsamic vinegar instead of the white balsamic vinegar.
