Tools: Small bowl, Trifle bowl or medium serving bowl

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.
