If you don't like fruit, then there's something wrong with you. Strawberries are one of my favorites. They go on anything, and even with a certain unlikely ingredient that's featured in the dessert today: balsamic vinegar. This recipe is, from what I read, a more European equivalent of strawberry shortcake. It also happens to be a lot healthier. Depending on how you make it the caloric value is about 150 calories, way better than ice cream or pound cake.
So, you'll need:
2 cups sliced strawberries
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Pinch of freshly cracked black pepper
1 Tbsp butter (if you're using a pan, keep reading)
2-4 wedges/slices of angel food cake (can use sugarless if you want)
1" thick Whipped cream (if you like)
Slice strawberries however you like and put them in a bowl with the balsamic and pepper to marinate for about 15 minutes. Heat up a grill, stovetop grill or skillet. If using the skillet add the butter, otherwise you don't need it. Throw your slices of angel food cake on and cook it on med until it browns and caramelizes slightly. Remove to a plate and add the strawberries and liquid. Finish with a small scoop, SMALL, scoop of whipped cream if you like. I personally don't care for it so I added nothing but a little powdered sugar for contrast.

All in all you can't beat a simple, fancy and healthy dessert. Try making it for your special person, show off to mom and dad, impress the kids, apologize to the neighbor for all that loud, creepy sex you're always having (no one likes a braggart, and bringing home drifters is unsafe), or just dine in alone and have an evening with the cats and Tom Bergeron.
