“In a bush lush
Swaying with dashes of red
Lay a field of raspberries
On a green & thorny bed,
Picked to perfection
Spilt over some greens
A dash of lime, pepper
Like creating a movie scene,
With a fruity entourage
This salad for the soul
Sweet & Tangy on the tongue
Made it summer in a bowl”
For the salad
50 gm mesclun mix (or any green leaves)
½ cup red or green cabbage, chopped
¼ cup diced red apple
½ cucumber, cut into slices
½ red pepper, sliced finely
2 tablespoons gouda cheese, cut into small cubes
¼ cup ripe raspberries
5-6 walnuts, broken into pieces
(You can add any veggies you fancy i.e. carrots, beetroot)
For the dressing
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
½ teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
4-5 ripe raspberries, mulled/crushed
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients for the dressing. Make sure the raspberries are mulled well so as to blend with the dressing.  Pour over the salad ingredients, toss lightly and serve immediately. A sweet & tangy start to the summer!
