Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar and lemon juice. Bring the syrup to a boil over a low flame and reduce the liquid to about 1/4 cup. Set the syrup aside to let it cool completely. Place the cut strawberries in a bowl, if they are not very sweet add a scant tablespoon of sugar. Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the berries, toss gently and let stand for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Combine the chilled mascarpone, heavy cream and vanilla in a bowl of a standing mixed fitted with a whisk or use a hand mixer. Whisk the cream until stiff peaks form. Divide the berries coated in syrup over 4 clear bowls or glasses, alternating layers of berries and whipped cream. Serve with a sprinkle of chopped mint and lemon zest.
