Juicy strawberries, fresh basil ribbons, and lime zest are peak-season summery ingredients that make the tarts as pretty as they taste.

  • Method: no bake
  • Cuisine: American


  • 5 medium strawberries, cut into 1/4 dice
  • 2 leaves fresh basil, chopped (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 1/8 teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 grinds fresh black pepper
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • prebaked mini fillo shells


  1. Filling: In a small bowl, combine strawberries, basil, lime zest, and pepper. Set aside. In another small bowl, combine yogurt, ricotta, and powdered sugar. Stir to blend. Refrigerate until ready to assemble tarts.
  2. Tarts: In each shell, spoon a teaspoon or two of yogurt cream. Top with strawberries.


The shells absorb moisture so become soggy over time. Best to fill close to serving time. Baking the empty shells will enhance the crispiness. Be sure they cool to room temperature before filling.
