Here are two good reasons to include strawberries in your diet:
Serving Size: 4
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Dash white pepper
3 cups strawberries – sliced (about 1 pound)
12 ounces sherbet — lemon is good
Combine sugar, vinegar and white pepper. Fold in strawberries. Marinate 30 minutes. Spoon sherbet into dessert dishes; top with strawberries. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired. Serve.
Serving Idea: Add a square of dark chocolate as a garnish. Be sure that it’s 60% cacao or higher to maximize the health benefits of the chocolate.
