"Strawberries macerated in balsamic vinegar are a traditional Italian dessert. Balsamic vinegar has a mellow, aromatic flavor and a dash added to all kinds of salads and vegetable dishes enhances the taste."
1 cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeds removed and thinly sliced
8 oz strawberries, halved or quartered if large
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 t coarse-grain mustard
1 t clear honey
3 T olive oil
Place the cucumber and the strawberries in a shallow bowl.
To make the dressing, put all the ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake well.
Taste the dressing for seasoning and adjust if necessary before pouring it over the cucumber and strawberries. Toss lightly to coat and chill for 5-10 minutes before serving.
There's nothing quite like strawberries and balsamic vinegar together. Balsamic vinegar makes a strawberry taste 10 times better! This salad is delightful and beautiful!
