Natural figs create a rich, sweet balsamic vinegar in one of our most versatile (and most popular!) flavors. The Olive Scene's Fig Balsamic Vinegar is perfect in sweet or savory dishes.
One of our customer favorite combinations is Fig Balsamic Vinegar + Tuscan Herb Olive Oil. There's something about the combination of this sweet, fruity balsamic with the savory, herb-filled oil that is irresistible! It's a great marinade for pork, chicken, and beef, but it's equally delicious on vegetables or as a vinaigrette.
Fig Balsamic Vinegar pairs well with almost any of our oils for both vinaigrettes and marinades. For more savory combinations, we love to pair it with Chipotle, Garlic, Rosemary, Herbes de Provence, Wild Mushroom and Sage, and Gremolata Olive Oil. For sweeter marinades and fantastic vinaigrettes, we suggest trying Fig Balsamic Vinegar with Blood Orange, Eureka Lemon, or Persian Lime Olive Oil.
It's amazing when combined with our nut oils to make gourmet vinaigrettes. They're perfect for green salads packed with nuts, fruit and cheese. Or try it on roasted vegetables such as sweet potatoes or Brussels sprouts, and to dress hearty grain salads made with farro or freekah. We love it with our Roasted Almond, Roasted French Walnut, Roasted Pumpkin Seed, or Pecan Oil.
You can incorporate Fig Balsamic Vinegar into any meal. Drizzle it over Greek yogurt or a fruit salad. Glaze grilled or roasted meats with it. Pair it with your favorite oil and dress a salad of tender greens, goat or blue cheese, candied walnuts or almonds, and seasonal fruit (think pears, apples, pomegranate seeds, or persimmons). One of our go-to appetizers for entertaining is simply a wedge of blue cheese or creamy brie with a drizzle of Fig Balsamic Vinegar, served with crackers or crostini.
