Strawberries in Balsamic Vinegar

Ingredients

1½ pounds fresh strawberries, cut into quarters
2 tablespoons C&H® or Domino® sugar
¾ tablespoon chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Directions

Serves 4

Place the quartered strawberries in a large bowl and sprinkle with the sugar. Add the mint and vinegar, and mix well. Let rest for 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving.



Chef's Notes

For a sharper, sweet-and-sour contrast, cook 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and 3 tablespoons of sugar in a small nonstick saucepan until reduced by one-third. Pour over the strawberries, add the mint, mix well, and enjoy!



I’d like to credit my mother with the addition of the mint, which in my humble opinion, completes the dish in a very satisfying way.
