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!!!

How to Make Ricotta Mascarpone Mousse w/ Balsamic Strawberries

Step-by-Step

  • 1Begin by preparing your mousse. Beat cream in a bowl until it reaches the soft peak stage... then stop! Set aside.
  • 2In a separate bowl, add the lemon zest and 1/2 cup sugar to your ricotta and mascarpone. Whip with mixer until smooth. (Yum!)
  • 3Next, 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.
  • 4When 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.
