Red fruit salad with balsamic vinegar and basil
Tips: Read through the entire recipe first
- 2 T balsamic vinegar
- 1 T sugar
- 1 Ib. cherries, hulled and quartered
- 10 medium fresh basil leaves, julienned*
- 1 Ib. red grapes halved
- 6 oz raspberries
In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Arrange the cherries in the bottom of a trifle dish or medium bowl. Top with the strawberries sprinkles with half the basil. Top with the grapes, then raspberries. Drizzle with the balsamic mixture; sprinkle with remaining basil.
*To julienne your basil, take several leaves and pack them one on top of the other, roll them like a cigar, then thinly slice. You will have beautiful thin slices of basil.
