Buttermilk Granita with Strawberries in Balsamic
Adapted from Food & Wine 
3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 pint strawberries, quartered
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon aged balsamic vinegar
4 tiny tarragon sprigs [I had a ton of mint, so I used that, but tarragon would be heavenly here! or basil!!]
1. In a bowl, whisk 1 1/2 tablespoons of the sugar with 1/2 tablespoon of the lemon juice until the sugar is dissolved. Whisk in the buttermilk and pour into a shallow baking dish; freeze until firm, whisking the mixture every 30 minutes, about 3 hours.
2. In a bowl, toss the strawberries with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Add the lemon zest and vinegar; let stand for 30 minutes. Spoon the berries and any juices into glasses. Using a fork, scrape the buttermilk ice into fluffy crystals and spoon over the strawberries. Garnish with the tarragon and serve.
