For some reason or other I really like balsamic vinegar especially with fruits and vegetables.
And of course, who doesn't like ricotta and mascarpone cheeses!!!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is one of those deceptively easy desserts that will really impress your guests! I plan to make it a regular dish for parties.

Ingredients

1 c
heavy cream
1 lb
whole milk ricotta cheese
8 oz
mascarpone cheese
3/4 c
granulated sugar
zest of one lemon
2 lb
strawberries, cleaned, hulled, cut into quarters
1/4 c
balsamic vinegar, or to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Begin by preparing your mousse. Beat cream in a bowl until it reaches the soft peak stage... then stop! Set aside.
2
In a separate bowl, add the lemon zest and 1/2 cup sugar to your ricotta and mascarpone. Whip with mixer until smooth. (Yum!)
3
Next, take the cream you've whipped and begin folding it into the cheese mixture. Take your time and go slowly. You want a smooth texture. When complete, cover and chill for an hour or two.
4
When you're getting near serving time, begin preparing your berries. Place them in a bowl and add in the remaning sugar and all of the vinegar. Toss quickly and serve promptly over your chilled mousse.
