Strawberries with Balsamic, Greek Yogurt and Mint {and Video}

Strawberries with Balsamic, Greek Yogurt, and Mint

It’s summer here in Indiana!  To celebrate, we made our favorite summertime treat and brought our video camera along to show you!

With our recent focus on fresh herbs, we wanted to share with you this lovely way to use mint, along with that signal that summer has arrived – strawberries!  We picked up some fresh local strawberries from the Broad Ripple Farmer’s Market this weekend for the occasion.

The Italians have a beautiful way of serving fresh strawberries with a little balsamic vinegar. It might sound strange, but the acid in the vinegar is the perfect compliment to the sweet berries. With some honey-sweetened Greek yogurt and fresh mint on top, it’s a delicious way to enjoy the warm weather.

It’s become a summertime tradition for us – hope you enjoy it too! (Plus, you get to practice your chiffonade.)

    I finally convinced my boyfriend to try strawberries and balsamic and now he’s a believer! I can’t wait to make this using the strawberries and mint from our garden. Thank you!

      Oh, awesome! Balsamic on fruit is one of our favorite tricks to share — so glad you could convince him! :)

    Finally got around to wanting to try the strawberry and balsamic combo and this was the perfect first recipe to “test” the combo on my taste buds! Loved it!
