Balsamic Strawberries with Ricotta Cream

Excellent source of: Vitamin C, Manganese
Good source of: Protein, Vitamin K, Calcium, Phosphorus, Selenium

  • 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 fresh basil leaves
  • Angel food cake 

  • 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 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.
  • Heat grill to medium-high and then lay cut slices of cake onto clean grill grates. Cook until charred, and then flip. This should only take a minute or two per side. Serve slices of grilled cake with strawberries and ricotta.
