Balsamic Strawberry Tiramisu-No Bake!

Balsamic Strawberry Tiramisu with Mint Garnish

I am a sucker for good deals, and tend to stock up a bit too much. Now this is great for items that have a long shelf life, however for items such as produce, not so much. That’s why when awesome sales come along like Whole Foods Market’s one day only sale on organic strawberries, I quickly go through my repertoire of recipes to use the items on. This was perfect!

Fresh Balsamic Strawberry Tiramisu

The perfect dessert for a hot summer day. Why you ask, well not only is it light and refreshing, but it is a NO BAKE dessert. Double Score. It also is fairly quick to assemble. Now we have talked about the amazing results to adding balsamic vinegar here and here, but I will reiterate it again. Balsamic vinegar brings out this amazing sweetness from the strawberries, leaving no residual balsamic flavor. Trust me on this. It works wonders!

    I made this for a family dinner and not only was it a hit but it was easy to make, the cream is super easy too adjust too for my family who dont have a sweet tooth like me. i do recommend sticking to the strawberry recipe though, it tasted great but i added a touch more sugar anyways and all it did was bring out the balsamic taste, i had to keep adding strawberries until it was gone. Passing this recipe to my aunt now thanks for being a life saver!

    Do you unmold it (turning over the pan) or is the purpose of linIng the pan with saran wrap just for the ease of getting it out of the pan to slice?

    The photos do not look like a slice from a loaf pan….was in made in something else that produced the traditional looking square pieces like a square or rectangle baking pan? Also how many does one recipe serve?
