“In this delectable dessert with a true Italian flair, the tart balsamic vinegar combined with sweet maple syrup and fresh mint enhances the flavor of fresh, juicy strawberries. Topped with a light vegan whipped “cream,” this dish is pleasingly light and refreshing.”
Chef’s note: For a thick, whipped-topping consistency, blend the cashews with 2 tablespoons water (in place of the ¼ cup). Start to blend and add more water, if needed. For a thinner topping consistency, add an additional tablespoon (or 2) of water before blending.
Chef’s note: If desired, you can serve the strawberries right away; however, the flavors will be less developed.
