This simple dessert is amazing on a hot summer day. It would make a perfect accompaniment to a beautiful frittata and roasted radishes for the perfect brunch menu!

For the Marinated Strawberries –

Combine in a small saucepan:

1/4 c Champagne Vinegar

Juice of 1/2 Lemon

1/4 c Raw Honey

1 tsp Mint Flakes (or 2 tbs fresh mint, finely chopped)

Bring all ingredients to a boil, then let simmer about 5 minutes until mixture is slightly syrupy.

Clean and quarter 1 qt of ripe strawberries.

Pour marinade over berries and allow to sit at least 2 hours.

In a clear dish, scoop 1/2 c ricotta cheese. Top with 1/4 c of marinated berries. Spoon some of the juice over the fruit and ricotta. Top with a small dollop of ricotta or fresh whipped cream if you prefer.
