I just came across fruit flavored vinegar and was fascinated by the concept. Passion fruit was my first choice as it has a unique flavor of its own. the sour taste is just what I would like for a salad. Hence I tried making Passion fruit vinegar from scratch and then added it to my Carrot bell pepper salad. I must tell you, it tasted so tropical. Perfect for the summer heat.

These are so easy to make. This is a great, unusual, easy-to-make salad for a dinner party.

Here I have showed how to make Passion Fruit Vinegar from the scratch. I have used it with a simple Carrot Bell Pepper Salad

Nice and tasty idea!

I could, even improve it by...

Adding the bell pepper pieces to the boiling, to get some shining with the honey...

And leave the vinegar store for a month... (could be awesome! )

Thanks for the recipe
