- 6 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup gray salt and black pepper
- 2 cup strawberries
- 1/4 pound italian biscotti
- 1/2 pound mascarpone cheese or vanilla gelato
Combine vinegar, sugar, salt and black pepper.
Mix well to incorporate.
Let stand for 15 minutes.
When ready, stir again to incorporate all the sugar; then pour over sliced strawberries and gently toss until berries are fully coated.
Gently crush biscotti into 4 serving bowls.
Spoon strawberries on top.
Stir mascarpone cheese to a smooth consistency and top each serving with a dollop.
Finish with any remaining syrup and serve immediately.
For an elegant presentation, place a single Italian-style biscotti finger upright in a martini glass.
Spoon marinated berries into the glass and top with frozen yogurt or gelato.
