Heaven! Only change I made was substituting brown sugar (approx 2T) for the Splenda. I'm just not a big fan of artificial sweeteners. And don't you dare serve this over some cheap brand of vanilla ice cream! I served it over Haagen Daaz vanilla and this dessert is to die for and couldn't be easier and quicker to make. Even my kids loved it!

This recipe sounded a bit adventurous so I decided to surprise my husband with a new, tasty treat for dessert. I was a bit disappointed though. I bought a nice bottle of balsamic vinegar - as other reviewers suggested, but to me the flavors didn't meld as well as I was hoping they would. I might try to make this again in the future, but it is not on my list of favorites.

Oh my - I love strawberries and I love balsamic vinegar, but never thought of the two paried together! This is a really great dessert that's so simple and yet a bit on the elegant side. Not to mention it's low fat!!!

Great recipe. I added a little more Balsamic to the strawberries and they were great. We put them in crepes for breakfast. Very easy to make.

Didn't cook this on the stove so I didn't use the butter. Used regular sugar and a little more balsamic vinegar. Fabulous! My kids loved them just as they were and I didn't get to put them over ice cream.

I'm giving this 4 stars because it has a lighter more delicate yet "proper" strawberry taste without the butter. Just let the cut strawberries marinate in the balsamic vinegar long enough (few hours). We like it with vanilla yogurt.

yum! I used organic raw sugar, no butter... and no HEAT! Instead I added about 3 tbsp of very good aged balsamic, sliced the berries evenly on the mandolin, and let them sit in the fridge for a couple of hours. They made their own wonderful syrup. I almost dont want to bother with the ice cream! I'm thinking that investing in the "good" balsamic makes he difference here - and allows the sauce to be rich and thick without the addition of butter. I'm going to be eating this all summer!

Simply Delicious. I used 1/4 cup sugar. My family loved it. The Balsamic vinegar gives it an exquisite flavor but doesn't taste like vinegar. Highly recommended.
