Yesterday on our way home from the gym, we walked by our corner store and couldn’t help but notice the incredible summer fruit on display. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries,watermelon – the list goes on and on. We decided to take home a few different types of berries to make our favorite simple summer dessert courtesy of the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten. This recipe is super simple and requires minimal ingredients/prep time. We suggest it for a night in or if you are hosting a fab summer dinner party.
* sidenote – we also love balsamic vinegar, which this recipe calls for. It seems like a strange ingredient to pair with berries and sugar, but trust us – this sweet treat is to die for.
