To add flavor to salads, roasted vegetables, fish, coleslaw, and other savory dishes, you can use red and white wine or balsamic vinegar for an added tanginess. Some types are more mild than others, so you can choose based on which flavor profile you desire. You can also use certain types of vinegar to tenderize meat thanks to its high acidity.
