Greetings from Martha from A Sense of Humor is Essential dropping in to share more deliciousness.
This incredibly easy, (two ingredients!!), and quite delectable combination of strawberries with balsamic vinegar, features the taste of umami.*
It makes a delightful dessert when served with ice cream, cream fraiche, or with cheese.
I enjoy it “straight up” with just the berries dipped in vinegar for a delicious and healthy treat. I hope you do too and thank you!

  • Wash, hull, and slice or quarter fresh ripe strawberries, place in bowl.
  • For each cup of sliced strawberries, add one to two tablespoons balsamic vinegar.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Strawberries can be prepared in advance, add vinegar just before serving
  • Serve with ice cream, cream fraiche, or with assorted cheeses.

*Umami means savoriness and is derived from the Japanese word umami meaning “pleasant savory taste”.
