Look no further for the perfect dessert—a simple and sweet recipe from my Italian cookbook You Never Grow Old at the Dinner Table. The perfect color for the occasion—enticing red strawberries steal the show, yet don’t rob you of prep time for anything else you may have planned for an enchanting evening. After all, Italian is the language of romance.

Ingredients (serves 4):
1 pound strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise
1 teaspoon sugar
Juice of one orange
¼ cup sweet Vermouth

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine the strawberries, sugar, and the juice of one orange. Pour the sweet Vermouth over the ingredients and toss to coat. Let stand for one hour before serving.

Spoon fruit into small dessert bowls. If you are looking for something to add to this dessert, it would pair nicely with sliced pound cake; serve a scoop of strawberries and a spoonful of juice over the top of individual slices of cake—yum!

You may also make this dish ahead of time, cover, and refrigerate. However, return to room temperature before serving.
