Balsamic Strawberries and Asparagus 


  • 1 pound asparagus ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 20 medium strawberries sliced
  • 10 leaves basil chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the asparagus on a baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil (I line my sheet with foil for easier clean up). Roast the asparagus for 8-10 minutes, until just tender. While the asparagus is roasting, boil the balsamic vinegar until reduced to about 1/4 cup. Divide asparagus among the plates and top with sliced berries, basil, and salt and pepper. Use a spoon to drizzle each serving of asparagus with the balsamic syrup.
