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!
