Just a quick post to tell you about something you MUST try: strawberries and balsamic vinegar over vanilla ice cream. Don’t cook the strawberries; don’t reduce the vinegar; don’t add any sugar.
We all know strawberries and balsamic vinegar pair up nicely. For me, balsamic goes with just about anything — I love the stuff so much, I could drink it. And that is just what I did last weekend, when I saw a strawberry-balsamic mojito on Barrio Urban Taqueria’s menu (PS- they have great ceviche and fish tacos, too!).
Anyway, last night, I was finishing off my homemade vanilla ice cream. Thinking about that mojito, I topped my bowl with strawberries and a drizzle of balsamic. If it works in a drink, why not over ice cream?
OH MY GOODNESS. It was one of the best things I’ve ever tasted. Vinegar over ice cream? Yes, please! It was sweet, salty and tangy. Go try it. Now!
