Balsamic Glazed Strawberries

Strawberries are one of the tell-tale signs of early summer. They're plentiful at the farmers market, and they're plentiful in the Produce Department. If you haven't tasted the flavor of strawberry with reduced balsamic vinegar, prepare for a party for your taste buds. This dish is delicious served over vanilla ice cream or yogurt.

To make this recipe you will need:
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound fresh strawberries, halved
¼ cup chopped fresh mint
2 cups vanilla yogurt or vanilla ice cream

In a small saucepan, mix together the balsamic vinegar and honey. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, until the mixture has slightly thickened. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Toss the strawberries with the balsamic glaze and stir in the mint. Once the sauce has cooled, drizzle over scoops of yogurt or ice cream in individual serving dishes.
