Nothing says summer faster than ice cream and strawberries, and this easy-to-pull-together dessert recipe will bring the season's flavors alive for you while also cooling you off a bit.

We love the bold flavors of apple Balsamic vinegar as it brings out the sweetness of the strawberries.  If you're not familiar with this condiment, this will be a wonderful way to expand your tastebud's horizons.  Aged much the same way as traditional Balsamic vinegar, and made with specific apple varieties, this vinegar will be a great addition to your pantry.  Aren't you curious about making this dessert recipe for your loved ones?  Hurry, ice cream awaits!

You will need to use a home or industrial ice cream maker to ripen or chill your ice cream for this particular recipe.

Chilled and perfect for summer dessert

I had never worked with Apple Balsamic vinegar before, I didn't even know it existed (even though I've been to Italy before and love traditional Balsamic), but having stumbled on this recipe and this ingredient, I am now hooked. It's just perfect with strawberries, and I've even tried it with blackberries and currants, and I have to say, I nailed it!
