Strawberries in Balsamic Vinegar w/Ricotta Recipe


Looking for a light dessert that doesn’t take too long to make? Strawberries in Balsamic Vinegar with Ricotta is quick, easy, delicious, and no-bake/no-cook. It can be put together in about 10 minutes hands-on time, and the flavors of fresh strawberries and balsamic vinegar paired with a scoop of honey-sweetened ricotta cheese is divine. Make sure you use high-quality balsamic vinegar; it is thicker and richer than its cheaper counterparts, and there is no comparison in the flavor.
