Strawberries with balsamic vinegar are suitable both as a salad for barbecue or as a dessert. Here you get two great recipes with strawberries and balsamic vinegar, perfect 17 May food!
It is easy to make your own balsamic syrup:
Put one part sugar and three parts balsamic vinegar in a saucepan, bring to the boil and let it boil to a syrupy consistency over medium-high heat. Be careful not to burn it! Cool off - and your own balsamic syrup is ready to use.
The syrup can be stored in a air tight bottle in the refrigerator (save small glass bottles with screw caps from when you buy smoothies, for example!). The syrup has a long shelf life.
Green ready-made salad mix or baby spinach, arugula salad or feldspar
Good quality olive oil (can be dropped)
Balsamic vinegar or balsamic syrup
Topping to taste, such as mozzarella cheese, burrata cheese, ricotta or cottage cheese
Chopped nuts, roasted kernels and seeds are also excellent toppings
Rinse the salad and dry it if it is not ready for use.
Rinse the strawberries and divide them into slices or boats.
Serve the salad on a platter or a slightly open bowl, dander the strawberries over.
Top with desired topping, cheese should be grated or split.
Top with olive oil and balsamic vinegar just before serving.
Use the salad as an independent dish on a buffet, or have it next to grilled meat or fish.
This dessert is a treat!
A basket of strawberries
Sugar or sugar substitute
Balsamic or balsamic syrup, about 10 tbsp
Basil or mint, if you do not have this, it can be skipped
Vanilla ice cream, or mascarpone cheese
For the daring: roasted and crushed black pepper
Rinse the strawberries, cut them in two or four, put the berries in a bowl and sprinkle with sugar or sugar substitute (sweetening can be omitted if the strawberries are really sweet and good) and about 10 tablespoons balsamic vinegar. Let the berries marinate for two hours.
Add a little toasted crushed black pepper if you like. See how to make roasted pepper in the frying pan here.
Cut basil or mint leaves into strips.
Serve the strawberries in serving bowls and sprinkle with basil or mint strips.
Put on a scoop of ice cream and enjoy yourself!
If desired, you can replace the ice cream with a scope of mascarpone cheese that has been whipped up with a little icing sugar instead of vanilla ice cream.
