Vinegar can be used with seafood, meat, vegetables, and fruit, to bring out the natural taste of the ingredients. It is central in Japanese dishes such as sushi and sunomono (vinegared dishes). Vinegar has been used both medicinally and in food for thousands of years, and is clinically proven to have a number of health benefits, such as lowering cholesterol, controlling sugar intake and killing mycobacteria. So take care of your health by enjoying this yummy recipe!
