First tip: the rabbit can be served with various side dishes. You can prepare it with every type of vegetables but we recommend you to serve it with boiled potatoes which match perfectly with Balsamic Vinegar.

Second tip: to give a bittersweet note to the dish, we recommend you to add orange juice (use three ripe oranges) during cooking: the final taste will conquer your palate. We suggest you to fresh oranges than packaged juice, which does not possess the fresh and authentic taste guaranteed by the squeezing of the fruit.
