    serves 4-6


A sweet-sour syrup made with raspberry vinegar makes a wonderful contrast to ripe summer berries. Here, we've used a combination of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, but you can use whatever berries look best at the market.


  • 6 cups mixed berries, such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp. raspberry vinegar
  • 14 cup torn mint leaves


Step 1

In a medium bowl, mash 2 cups berries with the sugar, lemon juice, and salt; let sit for one and a half hours.

Toss with mint and serve immediately.
