Strawberries and Balsamic

One of my favorite summer soiree desserts -- great with early strawberries or those strawberries that just aren't as pretty anymore -- enjoy!

1 pound strawberries; washed, hulled
2 T of aged balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey; (agave or granulated sugar would be fine - maple syrup would be too strong)
dash of fresh ground pepper (I like white but black would be fine)

Marinated Way:
Slice strawberries.
Drizzle and coat with honey.
Sprinkle balsamic over fruit and lightly toss to mix.
Let sit for at least 4 hours.
Just before serving crush a dash of pepper on top.

Quick Way:
Shake vinegar and honey in a glass jar with the lid on until the mixture is frothy.
Slice strawberries, (or if they are not so 'fine', dice them small).
Pour vinegar mix over strawberries.
Crush a dash of pepper on top.


Either way serve on their own or:
over bitter greens
fresh vanilla ice cream

If your strawberries are too soft, mix all the ingredients together and make a dressing!
