Strawberries w/Dark Cherry Balsamic and Coconut Milk


I made a dessert the other night, using Purely Decadent Coconut Milk Ice Cream (pretty incredible, but maybe one day they'll use honey instead of agave...), fresh strawberries, black pepper, and this really great Lucini Dark Cherry Balsamic Vinegar (I used it for this dessert and an awesome vinaigrette...to be posted later) I found at Whole Foods...if you can find it, buy it!!! YUM!!!

I don't like to eat agave (it's in the ice cream) very often, so I recreated it again last night using regular coconut milk. Easy and interesting, but tasty. If you try it...let me know what you think. The ice cream was AWESOME, but you know...on occasion. :)

Here's what I did:
  1. Clean and slice the strawberries (about 6 per) and place in a bowl 
  2. Cover with about 1 T. of balsamic (you can use regular, but if you can find this stuff you should splurge), stir, and let sit for at least an hour
  3. Grind about 1/2 tsp. of fresh black pepper over the top and stir
  4. Pour the mixture over your coconut milk ice cream or pour in a bowl and drizzle with coconut milk
  5. Enjoy!

Hello Jen, this looks wonderful. When you let the strawberries and balsamic stand for an hour, do you have them in the refrigerator, or at room temperature? Thanks!
