SPRING BRUSCHETTA


Serves: 4
Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 5 mins

 

For the salad:
Baby spinach
Handful of edible flowers, available from most farmers markets and specialty grocers
1 sliced cucumber
3 radishes, thinly sliced


For the vinaigrette:
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Juice of half an orange
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the bruschetta:
Loaf of crusty sourdough bread
400g goat's cheese
2 tablespoons honey
Fresh dill
Edible flowers

For the raspberries:
2 cups raspberries
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon honey
3 basil leaves, finely chopped

Method

 

1. To assemble the salad, layer spinach, cucumber and radish in a bowl. Top with edible flowers and set aside.


2. Combine all vinaigrette ingredients in a jar, pop the top on and shake to fully combine. Drizzle salad with dressing just before
serving.


3. Mix together the goat's cheese, honey and chopped dill in a small bowl until the mixture is a smooth, spreadable consistency.
Season well with salt and pepper. Spread the mixture on toasted sourdough.


4. Drizzle with extra honey and top with edible flowers. For a more savoury treat, add smoked salmon instead of honey and top
with capers.


5. Finally, wash the raspberries and place in a large serving bowl.  In a smaller bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, honey and
basil. Drizzle dressing over the fruit and serve immediately.


Serve this refreshing spread in our Euphemia Henderson range, a finish with a tart glass of rosè for the perfect Spring
afternoon.
