Strawberry Balsamic Topping/Dressing

Recently there was a family reunion here and the family chef prepared this for an ice cream topping.  I use it, generously, as the dressing on top of fresh spinach - lovely salad.  Just sprinkle sea salt and more fresh ground pepper over all.

Serves 4 as a salad dressing or 8 for ice cream topping:

4 cups sliced strawberries

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1 heaping tablespoon fresh and coarse ground pepper

Mix all together, allowing the strawberries to release their juice.  Let stand an hour before serving.
