Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

    10 min

    This is a unique way to serve this luscious summer fruit! The balsamic vinegar brings out the beautiful colour of the berries, and truly enhances their flavour. Great served with a simple sponge, over vanilla ice cream or simply on its own with a dollop of cream.

    Gotta admit, the only reason I tried this is because I didn't believe that strawberries with balsamic vinegar and pepper would taste right. Boy was I wrong! My guests and I loved this, especially over vanilla ice cream. The juice made a great ice cream topping! Will definitely make this again!!!  -  14 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
