Chef Lee, this was an unusual salad for me...I really liked the sweet/tangy combination, but it sure made me pucker :) The 1st time I've had balsamic with fruit, but I liked it the more I ate of it. Will definitely put this on in the keeper cookbook, though I may experiment with it using apples. Thanks for the recipe, made for Potluck Tag, Jan 2009.

Lee, if I could, this would be a 10 star recipe. I've had strawberries in balsamic & sugar before, but this goes beyond the pale!! Just the right amount of sweetness versus the natural tang of the fruit. I really didn't know if the strawberries were better or the pears. The only difference between yours and mine, is that I left mine out on the counter so the flavors would be even more intensified. So, in consequence, mine is a lot darker than yours. I would have loved to post a picture, but wouldn't you know it, tonight I took some really lousy pics. I can't say enough good things about this salad, so keep coming up with these wonderful recipes. Wanted to but couldn't, because some one got there first, adopt for Spring 2008 PAC.
