This is an Italian dessert that goes great with pasta. As the name suggests, it's a crazy combination but surprisingly excellent. Someone always asks me for the recipe when I make it. Be sure to use a good quality balsamic vinegar with this dish or you will not have as good results.

Excellent! A nice change of pace and I loved the addition of black pepper. Don't omit it! I have a pantry full of flavored balsamics so I ended up using chocolate balsamic and it was perfect. Next time I will try it with espresso balsamic. A very simple dessert but I can see how it would wow guests! Thanks for the great recipe Sunny! Read More

I used high end balsamic vinegar and shredded dark chocolate on top. I made it in the morning. Just before serving I mixed the chocolate in. Severed over brownies (made from this site) and ice cream. Yummy! Read More

First time I saw a similar recipe (it didn't have the chocolate) I thought there was no way it could be good. Oh boy was I wrong! Now this one has chocolate added? I'm in heaven! Read More

I made this recipe because it sounded so strange that I had to try it. I couldn't imagine this mix of ingredients could be edible let alone good. It's delicious!!! I intend to make it for dessert for an upcoming holiday. The pepper really makes it great so don't hesitate to use it. Read More

I've made variations of this for years. It's even more refreshing if you partially freeze the strawberries before you dress them. It's really great on a hot afternoon by the pool. Read More
