The recipe for this is very simple and can be found all over the web and are all slightly different. I had heard of it many times but never wanted to try it. Wow, I can’t believe I have been missing out, they are amazing. I think I was afraid because I could not imagine a sour vinegar over a sweet strawberry would be good but it really is just delightful. I wanted to include it on my site because although it is simple it is amazing over vegan ice cream and can be used in many other ways. The balsamic vinegar brings out the color and taste of the strawberries and the sweet and sour together is incredible!
The thing about this recipe is there are so many ways you can use it. You can eat them alone as pictured above or you can cook them down on the stove, blend it up your Magic Bullet and pour over ice cream, cake, or even your salad as an amazing fat free salad dressing (add a little water for the dressing to thin).
1 pound strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar (or other sweetener)
Place sliced strawberries in a bowl, sprinkle with sugar and toss. Let stand for 5 minutes.
Toss strawberries with balsamic vinegar and let stand for 10 minutes or longer. Enjoy over food of your choice or eat alone I enjoy them tossed in a salad or over vanilla ice cream. ENJOY!
