This blend of raspberries and smoked salmon is divine! Throw the bosc pear in there and you’re in heaven. This salad is quick and easy to put together. The unique colours will have your guests quizzing you about the recipe.
Raspberries are my very favorite fruit.. The raspberries at Barrie Hill Farms were pure perfection. I was happy to hear that we can expect to be picking them well into the 3rd week of August. They had some wonderful pea tendrils at the farm as well and they make such a nice addition on top of a salad.
This salad is also so full of flavors that you only need a very simple dressing. So I combined just extra virgin olive oil with balsamic and it worked very well.
