A few of the ways Mosquito Mama market customers use the dressing:
When I cook with the ‘Balsamic Buzzzzz…’ I usually add salt… balsamic gets sweeter with reduction, and this dressing is sodium-free!
Mix with mayo and spread on halibut. Grill in a foil boat.
Marinate salmon or tofu. Bake (or grill) the salmon, or sauté the cubed tofu until slightly browned. Add Sriracha, if desired. Serve with lightly sautéed broccoli, rice, and more ‘Balsamic Buzzzzz….’
Finely chop 1 cup each of carrots, celery, mushrooms, and onions. Sauté in 3 tbspns of olive oil. Add 2 cups of cherry tomatoes, chopped in half, and cook until everything is ‘mushy.’ Add ¼ cup ‘Balsamic Buzzzzz…’ and heat until it starts to steam.
Remove from heat, and serve over halibut, or cool & freeze in ¼ cup portions!

Or, try with butter lettuce, mandarin oranges, candied pecans, and dried cherries!
Chop a large tomato, cucumber, celery, and onion. Add additional olive or sesame oil,
and coarsely chopped rosemary, garlic, and basil. Toss & marinade in the ‘Balsamic Buzzzzz…’ Serve over spring greens, kale, &/or spinach.
