This is a perfect summer recipe for dessert.  It’s quick, easy, healthy and requires no heating up of the kitchen!  You can easily substitute other berries or peaches.  You could serve with a small dollop of lightly sweetened mascarpone to make this dish more special.


Serves 8-10

1/3 cup good quality balsamic vinegar

½ teaspoon fresh, squeezed lemon

3 lbs fresh strawberries halved or quartered

¼ cup packed light brown sugar

Pinch of black pepper



Combine balsamic and lemon juice.

Toss strawberries, brown sugar, and black pepper together.

Let sit for 15-30 minutes to let strawberries release their juices.

Drizzle with balsamic mixture.
