White Balsamic Vinegar comes in small bottles and the best know brand is: ALESSI. It is not clear as one would expect, but sort of a light caramel color.
It also comes in several flavors, like pear fig raspberry and is delicious just on its own sprinkled on salad greens.
If you don't want to invest in it
USE RICE WINE VINEGAR AND A PINCH OF SUGAR INSTEAD.
