Flavor of the Week: Agrodolce, the Italian sweet and sour sauce

This Italian sauce is all about contrasting flavors — it’s the Italian version of sweet and sour sauce.

Typically made by reducing sugar (or honey), vinegar and fruits/vegetables, agrodolce adds a punch of sweet, tart and tangy contrast to dishes from proteins to cheese plates. Even salads, sides and sandwiches benefit from this punchy sauce.

This highly versatile sauce has plenty of room for experimentation, from the sweet and sour components to the fruits or vegetables that can be incorporated.
