I admit, when I first heard of putting balsamic vinegar on strawberries I thought it sounded crazy at best, and disgusting at worst.
But then I tried it. Oh my! Somehow, the balsamic vinegar brings out all the strawberry-ness of the berries. It doesn’t taste vinegary at all. The strawberries are elevated to be their best selves. Fantastic!
And it’s such an easy thing to do. Clean and slice the berries. Add a bit of sugar and splash of balsamic vinegar. Stir and serve.
You need to try this!
It’s more method than recipe, but here are some measurements to get you started.
- 3 – 4 cups sliced strawberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
Stir it all together and be amazed at how this weird sounding combo is one of the most delicious things you’ve ever eaten!
I know! I felt the same way when I first heard about it a few months ago, but you are right…it’s AMAZINGLY delicious! (In the interest of fairness, my daughter, who loves strawberries, wouldn’t touch it) But I ate practically the whole pint in one sitting because I just couldn’t stop myself.

can you tell me how many carb. are in this receipe
Angela, I don’t have that info. I think there are websites that you can input recipes and it will give you nutrition info.

I put all this in the blender and used splenda to replace the sugar and it is so awesome on a green salad !
Mix in some orange segments with their juice…even better!
I’ll have to try that!
