Balsamic Strawberry Parfaits were developed after I realized I lacked 2 main ingredients to a previously planned dessert. I needed to work with what I had, so I added together four pieces that I had used separately in different recipes.[clear-line]
I was thrilled with what I got with the outcome. It was great to be able to take ingredients I had and create them into something like this![clear-line]

Some fruit, yogurt, ice cream, and nuts all mixed together to create something mouth-watering.  I especially love the salty, sweet, crunchy and smooth all combined.[clear-line]
I’ve made Balsamic Strawberry Parfaits numerous times since. Balsamic Vinegar really pairs nicely with strawberries to bring out their natural flavors. Everyone assumes balsamic vinegar has to be paired with something savory, but you’d be surprised with how amazing it is in this recipe.[clear-line]
Parfaits are so easy. They can be assembled fast after dinner and everyone loves having their own little cup. You could even have a fruit parfait bar set up where everyone can make their own. Imagine how fun that would be![clear-line]

Tools for making a Balsamic Strawberry Parfait:

Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.

Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!

Strawberry Huller– I never thought I needed one until I got one. Now I can’t love without it.

    Balsamic reductions are sweet and acidic, making them perfect for desserts. I even pour some over plain vanilla ice cream.
