You really need a good quality balsamic vinegar with this dish. I allowed the strawberries to saok in the sugar for a couple hours before serving. Add the vinegar and pepper only just before serving or they will not add any flavor.
Tastes only slightly different from plain strawberries with sugar. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't totally different from my other strawberry experiences.
Very easy and delicious! This is one of those recipes that's really great and so simple yet tastes really good. It's surprisingly elegant and not to mention low fat! Definitely a "guilt free" treat.
This is v good. It'd impress your guest, while being terribly easy to do. I think one needs to soak the berries with the sugar for longer than 10 mins, more like 45 mins if possible - I also added basil leaves, for fragrance. The balsamic vinegar and pepper, served separately for your guest to add himself, gives the sweetness a subtle complexity. Good accompaniment for a savory breakfast dish.
I made this salad for easter dinner, as we had a bunch of strawberries and didn't want them to go to waste - it was quite good. I must say, if you do make it, don't make it ahead of time and let it sit before you serve it, otherwise you lose the flavour of the balsamic vinegar. I noticed when I made it you could taste it, and it was a nice combination, but by the time we actually served dinner (an hour later), it just tasted like sweet strawberries. Give it a go, just serve it right away!
Wow! I served this at a party on a bed of spring greens and everyone loved it!
This recipe was great! I served it for Easter dinner along with 6 other dishes and lots of people said it was one of the best. Don't let other reviews scare you off from this awesome fruit dish. I thought it was great. The pepper and vinegar added a perfect touch to a sugary strawberry salad. I wasn't sure about how it would turn out when I looked at the recipe. But, I tried it and I'm glad I did. No wonder they put this recipe in the cookbook!
We absolutely loved this! It's so quick and easy to make and the pepper adds a nice kick. I'll make this again for sure.
