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.
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!
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!
