    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.  -  08 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very easy and delicious! This is one of those recipes that's really great and so simple yet tastes really good. It's surprisingly elegant and not to mention low fat! Definitely a "guilt free" treat.  -  17 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  12 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
