Strawberries with mascarpone and basil cream

I found a recipe more or less simiar to mine. The lady suggests some modifications at the end of the recipe...

500 g very sweet, medium-sized strawberries

  • 1 - 1,5 tbsp icing sugar

  • 1.5 tbsp raspberry vinegar (red wine vinegar)

  • Wash the berries, remove the stems, halve the berries and place in a bowl

  • Combine the icing sugar and vinegar and add it to the strawberries, stir gently and leave to chill for 30 min in a fridge

  • 125 g mascarpone cheese

  • 100 ml cream 25% fat

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar

  • 50 ml chopped basil leaves

  • In a bowl combine the mascarpone and cream, add the icing sugar and beat together

  • Add the basil and stir well

  • Serve the strawberries topped with the cream

I used the passion fruit juice instead of the vinegar. Also I took fromage blanc instead of mascarpone. I think that 50 ml of the chopped basil (its about 20 large basil leaves) is a bit too much, the cream turned to have an overpowering basil flavor. I took a bit less.
