The summer season is here, so let’s enjoy our evenings outside with a mini spring burger made with two Pink Lady®apples! Golden seeded buns bursting with fresh flavour, where the apple reveals fruity fragrance in a sweet and sour compote, and its green notes in a fan of raw apple. Pink Lady® apple chutney that melts in the mouth and is perfumed with cardamom is spread on the buns. Raw Pink Lady® apple brings a touch of acidity and crispness. In this dance of flavours, led by the Pink Lady® apple, sun-baked strawberries provide a touch of sweetness and rocket shoots add spice, while thin slices of coppa reveal an intense flavour, and the sheeps’ cheese rounds it off. Subtle and bold, these mini spring burgers will impress your guests at cocktail hour!
