These fresh strawberries are perfectly paired with a sweet and creamy layer of cheeses.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup part-skim Ricotta cheese
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 container (16 ounces) fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, cut into ribbons

Directions

Whip ricotta cheese, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract in a medium bowl using an electric mixer. Divide mixture into six serving goblets and chill. Combine vinegar and granulated sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture lightly coats a spoon. Cool completely. Toss strawberries with balsamic syrup. Evenly divide strawberries into each goblet. Sprinkle basil ribbons on each. Serve immediately.
