Summer Fruit with Raspberry Mint Sauce

Fresh Fruit with Raspberry Sauce

There are times when we cooks don’t always want to get cooking. Last week, on a sticky, scorching day, preparing a meal was the last thing I felt like doing. Cranky and wilting, I packed up my 3-year-old and headed to a nearby café.


Summer Fruit with Raspberry Mint Sauce
We were thrilled to discover this unassuming dish on the menu. The fruit was arranged proud and upright on the plate, like a juicy Stonehenge. Beautiful in its simplicity. And just the perfect way to beat the heat.


Besides, air conditioning never tasted this fresh.

For another invigorating summer dish that doesn’t involve the oven, try 1-Minute Basil Pesto with Ricotta Cheese!
