The glaze I used is Monari Federzoni Sweet Onion Balsamic Glaze which I found at Walmart. I love it on fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and salads. It adds the perfect sweet and tangy flavor to any dish.
Also, the essential lemon oil I used in this recipe was amazing! Just a few drops and the whole kitchen smelled like I had just zested a lemon. You get all that lemon flavor without the bitterness from the peel our sourness from the juice. Love it!
