Summer salad with shrimps and raspberries
Imagine yourself in a summery atmosphere thanks to the delicious scents of lime and raspberries in this summer salad! In this salad we combine the prawns with garlic and chilli for a slightly spicy kick. It is of course extra tasty if you grill the shrimps on the BBQ, but you can also fry them in a (grill) pan.
You can make this summer salad in a few minutes, but because of the unique combination, this dish will be the showstopper at any BBQ. But you can of course also eat this fresh salad outside the summer season. For example as a meal with a freshly baked baguette or as a light starter during a Christmas menu. In fact, it’s always delicious! And this is how you make it:

Nothing is more challenging than releasing a fragile raspberry into the world in such a way that it’s resilient, yet retains its elegant, sweet flavour. Naturally, our growers have succeeded in doing just that.
But do you know what the most important thing is for us? The picking. It’s a sort of honourable task for the highly skilled: careful but effective picking that ensures the arrival of a flawless raspberry on your plate.
We’d like to introduce you to: Sapphire. Sapphire opens the season. We’re already picking this variety in March. This light pink raspberry with its authentic character smells heavenly and has a fantastic, full flavour.
