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.
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Dash white pepper
3 cups strawberries, sliced
12 ounces sherbet (lemon or strawberry is good, or pick a flavor you think pairs well with strawberry)
1. Combine sugar, balsamic vinegar, and white pepper. Dump in strawberries. Let it marinate for 30 minutes.
2. Spoon 3 ounces of sherbet into four separate dessert dishes; top with strawberries. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired, and serve.
