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.
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.
