Balsamic vinegar and black pepper may seem like odd additions to strawberries, but your taste buds will be delighted! The acidity of balsamic glaze, which is just concentrated balsamic vinegar, brings out the sweetness of the strawberries, while the black pepper adds a touch of heat. These strawberries are great on their own, or use them to top vanilla yogurt. Or, serve on top of a bed of spinach as a side dish with dinner.

    16 oz
  • balsamic glaze
    1 1/2 tbsp

  1. In a large serving bowl, combine the strawberries and balsamic glaze. Grind the black pepper on top and gently mix. Garnish with sprigs of tarragon.
