Pink Lady® apple caviar in verrines is a simple recipe. It makes an ideal and sophisticated accompaniment to pre-meal drinks with friends or family! The sweet and slightly sharp taste of Pink Lady® apples provides sweetness and balance to the saltiness of the crab, the heat of scallions, and the ‘green’ and earthy flavours of cucumber and bean sprouts. They also bring crunch to the soft textures of crab and avocado. This dish is both elegant and original, and can easily be added to any summer menu!
