Using a pestle and mortar, lightly crush the black pepper corns, and then place them in a small bowl, on the same tray as the strawberries.
Lightly crush the red pepper corns, as above, and place them in a separate bowl, again on the tray. Mix the ricotta in another bowl with the ground cinnamon
Pour the balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Place the lemon zest in another bowl, and mix in the sugar.
