Strawberry Balsamic Reduction is deliciousness for dipping into with a slice of artisan loaf, on a pizza, or to top off a sandwich!
You guys have probably noticed I pretty much live at Trader Joes… seriously the BEST place ever! I love their balsamic vinegars so it’s no surprise that it’s showing up in this recipe, right?!
Balsamic Reductions or Drizzle Sauces are the just heavenly when used for that added little pop of flavor for your favorite recipes. I love the addition of strawberries in my version! Of course you could use any berry that’s in season… think raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, elderberry, and on and on! Oh my gosh. Any berry would be just delightful for sure. It lightly sweeten with a little bit of honey- it’s SO tasty you’ll be tempted to eat it all by itself 🙂
Tomorrow, I’m sharing a grilled cheese sandwich that is out-of-this-world and with this reduction for dipping, you’ll be left completely speechless!! Wowza. It’s just amazing.

I went to Snap Conference 2015 this past weekend and had a great time making new blog friends plus reconnecting with old ones too! It’s always nice to learn some new things about blogging in the classes. Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod and I spoke together about working with interns (I was her intern this past term), how to’s, finding and working them, and tips on how to best have an intern help you. I loved my intership with Maria- she and her family are so wonderful! I’m super grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from her and to become friends… I’ll totally miss them all so much!
Most of you probably know I’m graduating this week from the Culinary Arts program at Utah Valley University. It’s a big day for me and I’m so excited to see it almost here!!! Today I’ll pick up my cap and gown.. then it’ll all start feeling really “REAL” after that, right ?!
Well, that’s the short of my life lately. Oh, besides having a late spring snow/hail/rain storms over the last week… it’s pretty eventful 🙂
I hope you love this Strawberry Balsamic Reduction it’s so simple to make and totally tops off so many recipes that you’ll love every last drop!
Much Love and Peace~
