Grilled strawberries with balsamic vinegar and sugar recipe

With strawberries coming into season here in the Northwest this is an inexpensive, easy-to-make, relatively healthy dessert – Grilled strawberries with balsamic vinegar. Served with homemade whip cream (recipe coming tomorrow) – it’s divine!


8 whole strawberries, hulled and left whole

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar (you could use Splenda or brown sugar if you like)

Wood skewers – you can soak in water if you want, but they aren’t on the grill very long

Optional garnishes – toasted almonds, mint, basil, chocolate chips


1.) Preheat grill to high

2.) In a bowl, coat strawberries with balsamic vinegar and sugar.

3.) Skewer strawberries down the middle.

4.) Grill on high for one to two minutes, until warm. Don’t grill too long, they’ll get mushy.

5.) Serve with homemade whip cream and garnishes of your choice
