It’s easy to make your own balsamic glaze, pumping up the flavor of dressings and sauces without adding fat to the dish.


Makes 2 Servings

  • balsamic vinegar (6 tbsp.)
  • pears (Asian pears work best), chopped (2)
  • arugula (4 cups)
  • radishes, thinly sliced (2)
  • roasted cashews, chopped (2 tbsp.)
  • salt (to taste)


  1. Over medium heat, simmer the balsamic vinegar until it reduces by half, creating a glaze. Immediately spoon the glaze over the pears and toss them.

  2. Toss the arugula, radishes, and cashews together, and then top with the balsamic pears and a very small sprinkle of coarse sea salt.
