The idea of combining balsamic vinegar and strawberries intrigued me...and I had all of these ingredients at home. Seeing the Sugar High Fridays Berries post on Susan's blog gave me the final push of motivation to try this out after dinner tonight. I used vanilla yogurt instead of ice cream to make it a bit lighter...and substituted allspice for the ground cloves. The result was a really refreshing, tasty dessert with just the right amount of sweetness!
(Makes 2 servings)
1/2 1 pint basket strawberries, sliced
1 T balsamic vinegar
2 T sugar
2 T pine nuts
2 pinches of ground allspice
Vanilla Frozen Yogurt
1. Combine berries, vinegar, and 1 T sugar in a small bowl.
2. Combine remaining 1 T sugar, pine nuts and allspice in a heavy skillet. Stir over medium-low heat until sugar is melted and pine nuts are golden brown.
3. Scoop vanilla yogurt into bowls, top with strawberries, then pine nuts. Enjoy!
