Have you tried marinating strawberries? It really enhances the flavor! With just a few ingredients: balsamic vinegar, fresh mint, lemon juice and sweetener, it really elevates the strawberries into something extra special!

Now I should note that balsamic vinegar is the only vinegar that contains carbohydrates (2-3g carbs per tablespoon). Yet it pairs fantastically with strawberries – in fact I've use this combination before with my recipe for Whipped Mascarpone Cream with Balsamic which is served with strawberries – YUM! Only one teaspoon of balsamic is used here, but to great effect! If you wanted to skip it (which would make the recipe sugar free), then of course you can – and you shouldn't buy balsamic especially for this recipe. But it really adds SUCH a good flavor!

Update! Check out my new recipe for zero carb balsamic vinegar! It's perfect for this recipe!
