Spring is here at Pink Lady®. Full of freshness, this recipe combines a hint of the sea from the scallops with the vanilla sweetness of the Pink Lady® apple. Rich in textures, raw apple and courgette provide a crunch while the avocado and the scallops provide a soft and creamy element. The toasted sesame oil and chervil provide subtle oriental notes to marry toasted flavours with aniseed. Enjoy!
