Balsamic Berries and Almonds
 
This is a very simple, yet elegant and healthy dessert that most people wouldn't even know that these ingredients match well together.


Ingredients


1-2 cups fresh berries
4 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup slivered almonds

Instructions

Very easy everyone:

Wash and slice fresh berries (if needed).

Evenly separate the berries between two small bowls.

Pour 2 tsp of balsamic vinegar over each serving.
Top with slivered almonds.

I think a good balsamic reduction, finished with a tiny bit of honey would make it even better. . .but heck, a good balsamic redux is good on practically anything from pork to vanilla ice cream.

Great point, this simple recipe allows for great creativity and expansion!

Wanted to throw this in there too, even maybe finish off a Roast Duck with this

I make this same thing with just a little honey added to it. I've also thrown in some feta or blue cheese crumbles.

Great idea purple!

Thanks. It's amazing how something so simple can taste so good. Add a side of cucumber spears and a glass of iced herbal tea and it makes a super good lunch. Also, my husband thought I was crazy for making it and wouldn't try it (a rare thing for him) so it's vindicating seeing someone else post it! :)

Sounds gorgeous. Yes it's surprising the ingredients that work well together that you just wouldn't expect.
