balsamic strawberries

Delicious with almond whipped cream.  The longer the strawberries set, the soggier they will get, so it’s best to eat this the day you make it.  However, I had leftover strawberries that I put on a spinach salad the next day, and I still thought the berries tasted good.  The strawberries are so yummy as a salad topping, no salad dressing needed!
