Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

I can’t make enough of this simple yet wonderful and amazing dessert.  Don’t let the ingredients scare you….the combination of sweet, tart, and spicy all together wakes up your taste buds and makes you want more!  It is the perfect summer dessert and one of the most delicious desserts you’ll make all year.  You want a high quality rich and flavorful Balsamic Vinegar to drizzle over your berries. I use Star Balsamic Vinegar of Modena- Gold Edition.  Serve with Ice cream or whipped cream or save some calories and eat it like it is.  You can thank me later!

Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

8 cups fresh ripe strawberries, sliced 
5 tablespoons Star Balsamic Vinegar of Modena- Gold Edition
2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Freshly grated lemon zest, for serving (optional)
Fresh mint leaves for garnish

About an hour prior to serving, rinse and slice your strawberries and pat dry and plate on paper towel lined plate or bowl. 

Next, combine the strawberries, balsamic vinegar, sugar, and pepper in a bowl.  Toss well and set aside at room temperature.

Sprinkle mint leaves on top and drizzle with more balsamic if desired.  Let the mixture rest for 1 hour before serving. Serve at room temperature.

For an added treat, place a serving of the strawberries in a bowl with a scoop of ice cream on top and dust lightly with lemon zest.
