Ingredients

  • 1 pt. fresh strawberries
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • 1 tbs fresh, finely chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tbs fresh, finely chopped mint
  • 1/2 tbs fresh, finely chopped chives
  • 2 tbs cream (or milk)
  • 1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Wash and hull strawberries, set aside. In a small bowl, combine goat cheese and herbs.
  2. Add zest and just enough cream to make the goat cheese creamy. Salt to taste.
  3. Using a piping bag, pipe the goat cheese into the center of the berries. Alternatively, you can use a spoon to stuff the berries.
  4. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, add the balsamic vinegar and heat at a medium temperature until the vinegar gets syrupy and reduces by half.
  5. Drizzle on top of berries and serve immediately.
