Yield: Serves 8
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 23 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes

8 slices sourdough bread
1 cup strawberries, sliced
3 ounces prosciutto
1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
Balsamic-soy reduction (recipe below)
Basil (optional garnish)

For Balsamic-Soy Reduction
½ cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon cane sugar


  1. To make balsamic-soy reduction: Heat balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and cane sugar over medium-low heat until boiling. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring regularly until mixture reduces and thickens, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and pour glaze into a small jar to cool and continue to thicken.
  2. While the balsamic-soy sauce is reducing, preheat oven to 425ºF. Place bread slices on a medium baking sheet and lightly brush with olive oil. Bake for 7-8 minutes to lightly toast.
  3. Remove bread from oven and add heaping dollops of ricotta cheese onto warm toasted bread. Spread with a knife. Top with prosciutto, sliced strawberries and drizzle with balsamic-soy reduction. Finish with chopped basil.
