Strawberries with Smoked Black Pepper and Balsamic Vinegar

I know what you’re thinking. Pepper? On strawberries? Trust us. Pepper is the perfect compliment to summer fruits, especially strawberries. The pepper really brings out the sweetness of the strawberries and you can never go wrong with a little smoke, too. Try it with peaches and pineapple, too. Serve on its own or with a spinach salad with goat cheese.
