Balsamic Strawberries

Wow, talk about a smorgasbord of flavors! I was very intrigued when I saw the recipe—balsamic vinegar, sugar and pepper, so I had to try it. These are delicious by themselves, but spooned over some vanilla soy ice cream is absolutely to die for! Great as a quick summertime dessert.

Balsamic Strawberries


16 oz fresh strawberries, halved or quartered lengthwise

2 Tbs balsamic vinegar

1/4 C granulated sugar

1/4 tsp ground black pepper, or to taste


Place strawberries in a bowl. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with sugar. Stir gently with a rubber spatula to combine. Cover and let sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour, but not more than 4 hours. Just before serving, grind pepper over berries. Enjoy!

Smorgasbord of flavors indeed! It actually reminds me a bit of my spaghetti with strawberries, which is vegan too, as long as you don't top it off with parmesan cheese.
