Strawberries With Brown Sugar & Balsamic Vinegar

"A small spin on a classic Italian dessert. This excellent summer dessert takes no time at all to prepare and is always a cool and refreshing pleaser. Be sure to use a good balsamic vinegar - remember your recipes are only as good as your ingredients!"

Ready In:




  • Combine the strawberries, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and black pepper in a bowl; cover and marinate in the refrigerator 30 minutes.
  • Spoon equal amounts into 4 dessert dishes (I like to use "open" champagne glasses for a simple & elegant presentation) and top with 2 tablespoons lemon yogurt.
  • Garnish with fresh mint leaves and a bit of freshly ground black pepper - YUM!

    I couldn't believe how great this was. What an unusual combination of ingredients! Just wonderful.

    This recipe was good, however the strawberries I had were so good that their flavor was stand alone and the subtleness that this recipe may have added perhaps didn't get a chance. Was fun to try something different. Thanks for posting <3

    I have used this recipe a couple of times - and I can't wait to make it again - it's my favorite way to eat strawberries when they are ripe and juicy!!
