Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze is a thick, sweet and tangy concoction that’s great for drizzling over caprese salad, finishing pork or other meats, or in a marinade. This is a good value priced under $3, especially with no added sugar. But it is still super sweet and definitely dominates the flavors of whatever it is put on. These little bottles last forever in your pantry so may as well stick one in the back just in case. I honestly sometimes forget its back there, but I think I use it most often when I buy Trader Joes Burrata or with some butter lettuce and mozzarella in a caprese salad. Tjs balsamic glaze is significantly cheaper than most groceries, especially at places like Whole Foods. There is nothing super fancy about this little bottle, but it can make salads or meats taste a lot better…..…….

Balsamic Glaze at Trader Joe’s
Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze does unfortunately have caramel color in it and has the less expensive type of balsamic vinegar of course because of the price, but it still gets the job done. What is everyone’s favorite recipe or way to use this little bottle of purple sweetness?! This has an odd place somewhere in between regular old balsamic vinaigrette and balsamic vinegar. I’m not sure how this product came to be way back in the day, but it definitely is very niche. But I wont ever complain about a naturally sweet tasting glaze that can be used on everything from a caprese salad to pork medallions. It may not be used a ton, but it is definitely versatile and packs a tangy, zingy, sweet flavor! Here’s a few options if you can’t make it out to TJs…..
