(Recipe) Strawberries Romanoff

Yum! This dessert is perfect to share with your significant other after a romantic dinner at home. It’s easy to make too.

Don’t let the balsamic vinegar in the recipe turn you away – it makes strawberries taste so sweet. If you’ve never tried it before, this is the recipe to do it with.

After you make the strawberry mixture, you can layer it over a scoop of sherbet (or other cream like real whipped cream) for a cool, refreshing taste.
