Strawberries with Balsamic and Basil

July 29

Here is recipe for three of my favorite foods in one!  This is beautiful when served in a wine glass with a dollop of greek yogurt over the top.  (Vanilla bean ice cream is great, too)  The leftovers of this recipe can be pureed in a food processor with a touch of orange juice and it makes fantastic popsicles!





Strawberries with Balsamic and Basil

  • 1/2 cup balsamic glaze,  i prefer Gia Russa brand.  (It is available locally at hornbachers or on
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, torn into small pieces
  • 2 lbs strawberries, trimmed and halved

In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients.  Let stand for 5 to 1o minutes.  Stir again right before serving.
