This is the sort of recipe we would see towards the end of the summer and the last of the strawberries was at hand. It was simple, yet fantastically flavorful. Don&#039;t let the vinegar and sugar frighten you off.<br />

Simple yet elegant. Sweet, yet tangy. A perfect blending of the two and particularly wonderful if you love Balsamic. Use a good aged Balsamic to really bring out the flavor of the strawberries. I loved this recipe!
