When you go to the pantry and discover you're out of or don't have enough balsamic vineger, try this easy substitution. Tastes close enough for when you're in a pinch!


  1. Combine red wine vinegar and sugar.
  2. Equals about 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar.

worked well for me. nice and easy. I just may never buy balsamic vinegar again since I can use red wine vinegar easily for either request.
