Ingredients

  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 (16-ounce) container strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons chiffonade fresh basil leaves

Directions

Put the ricotta cheese, honey and vanilla extract into the small bowl of a food processor and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer to a small bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

In a small saucepan combine the vinegar and sugar and bring to a boil. Simmer over a medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool completely.

In a medium bowl, toss the berries with the basil and the balsamic syrup.

Divide the cheese cream among 4 cocktail glasses, top with the berry mixture and serve.

Cook's Note

Recipe Analysis Note: Ingredients without discrete measurements such as "Salt, to taste" or "Ice cream, optional" are omitted from analysis. This is because amounts can be highly variable and difficult to determine.
