    Yes, the vinegar will prevent browning (and yes, the same result could be attained using lemon- or lime juice), but a high-quality, aged balsamico enhances the flavor of many fruits, particularly the ones in this recipe. It adds a richness and depth that you simply won't get from a citrus acid. - 9/5/08

    Very good! The dip is a little tart though, so I mixed it with fat-free cool whip. - 6/6/07
