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

  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.
