Orange & Strawberry Salad with Balsamic Reduction

Oranges & Strawberries

 Fresh fruit is fabulous on its own, but add a balsamic reduction and you will be in heaven. On a warm summer night, this is the perfect dessert.



¼ Cup Balsamic Vinegar
2/3 Cup Granulated Sugar
Fresh Mint – Chopped (Optional)
¼ Cup Water


Peel the oranges and remove all the pith.  Cut into slices or chunks.  Wash the strawberries and remove the stem.  If the strawberries are very large, then slice them.  If they are small to medium, then just cut in half.

Arrange the orange slices and strawberry slices in a dish.  Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the fruit.  Top with chopped mint.

Balsamic Glaze
In a small saucepan, add the vinegar, water and sugar.  Whisk to combine.  Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer the vinegar until it becomes thick.  You will know it is ready when the glaze coats the back of a spoon.
