Review This Recipe
Easy and Delicious!
This recipe is easy and was a pleasure to make. The reduced balsamic vinegar makes a decadent glaze. The brown sugar on strawberries turns the strawberry juice into a beautiful semi-sweet strawberry glaze. Follow the directions and don't skip any ingredients! You're taste buds will be happy you stuck to the game plan! I can't wait to make this for friends!
It looks great when served in Martini glasses too, with a small lemon slice on the rim of the glass!
