Amazing Strawberries

From Casual Cooking these strawberries are amazing!  You will read the recipe and think it is crazy - trust me and try it.

Strawberries - rinsed and hulled (cut into large slices if necessary)
1/8 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Gray sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Cream cheese, softened

Mix the sugar, vinegar, and a pinch each of the sea salt and pepper.  Stir well and pour over the strawberries.  Let it sit for about 15 minutes.  Serve with a dollop of the cream cheese.

Michael's recipe called for using mascarpone cheese, but I didn't have any.  It also suggested serving the strawberries with a biscotti, but I didn't have one.

This recipe made enough for 3.  DH didn't think it was a good idea to use balsamic vinegar with strawberries - silly man - so I had to eat all of them!  It was fantastic!
