Mario Batali uses homemade strawberry sorbet to complement the balsamic-infused fruit salad, but store-bought sorbet also works well.

  1. 1 pound strawberries, quartered
  2. 1 1/2 tablespoons good-quality balsamic vinegar
  3. Freshly ground pepper
  4. Strawberry sorbet, for serving
  1. In a large bowl, toss the strawberries with the vinegar and a generous pinch of pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Serve over strawberry sorbet.

Suggested Pairing

A nicely sweet Italian Brachetto d’Acqui.
