Strawberry-Ricotta Grahams

Graham Crackers are at their best when topped with ricotta cheese and strawberries. I wanted to have dessert that would use strawberries and also finish leftover ricotta cheese. And this simple assembly is unbelievably delicious. I have always been looking for this kind of dessert especially on a weeknight - easy and quick to prepare. Even I can carry all ingredients to a party/pot luck and assemble them as and when needed.

I am looking forward to have some more experiments with these crackers in form of cheesecake and pie.

Makes 15 crackers
Preparation Time: 20 Minute
Cooking Time: NIL

15 pc graham crackers (I used whole wheat with honey)
1/4 cup strawberries, thinly sliced
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
3 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon zest

1. In a bowl, mix strawberries, 1.5 tsp sugar and lemon juice. Keep it aside till berries become soft and juicy (about 10-15 minute)
2. In a separate bowl, mix ricotta cheese, remaining sugar and lemon zest
3. Top crackers with ricotta cheese mixture and then with strawberries. Serve immediately
