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!
