Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

I have to admit. I have never heard that strawberries and balsamic vinegar going well together. I’m still fairly new at using balsamic vinegar, I’ve only used it a few times, and was very unsure about pairing it with the sweet, juicy strawberries. After reading Kevin’s entry about the Strawberry Rice pudding, I thought this combination is something that I should really try. I was leery, and only did a small batch of strawberries (I didn’t want to waste those beautiful, juicy sweet berries with vinegar… did I??).



The verdict…DELICIOUS!! I have absolutely no idea why I haven’t tried this earlier. The sweetness of the berries is really enhanced by the balsamic vinegar. If you have never tried this with your berries before, you should. Now I have to do more experimenting with this combination, it is a new found treasure.

    I’ve recently bought balsamic vinegar for another recipe and wasn’t sure where else I was going to use it. Thanks for the idea!

    Mom, try it, you won’t be disappointed! :)

    Katskitchen – the balsamic vinegar is wonderful in chicken dishes as well. Really tastes pretty good!

    The strawberry and balsamic combination has been getting more attention of late.
    We did a strawberry and cherry tomato salad with balsamic vinegar last year. It was a big hit. Worthy of a repeat the next day.

    That looks good! Strawberries and balsamic vinegar are a great combination. I will have to try adding some pepper next time.
