Marinated Pazzo Berries

I hosted a dinner party this weekend and stumbled across this recipe at Food Network by Michael Chiarello

Marinated Pazzo Berries

It is delicious! So I thought I'd share the recipe!

1 cups strawberries, stemmed and quartered
6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup superfine sugar
sea salt
6 large Italian Biscotti, broken into small pieces
4 oz marscarpone cheese, stirred to a smooth consistency. 

1. Place strawberries in a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, sugar, pinch of salt and pepper. Let stand for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. 
Pour marinade over the berries and gently toss to coat. 
Divide the Biscotti pieces into 4 bowls. Spoon the berries and some of the marinade over each and top with a dallop of marscarpone. Serve immediately. 

It was such a great "light" dessert after a heavy pasta dinner. The combination of the sweet and sour and the bit of crunch were heavenly! :)
