Make the most of Raspberry Season
Raspberries are in season and taste wonderful. There is nothing more lovely than the taste of freshly picked, seasonal fruit and vegetables.
Try this salad, it really is delicious with it's sweet and savoury sensation of tastes. From the peppery rocket, spicy chilli roasted walnuts and salty blue cheese to the sweet fresh taste of British Raspberries, all finished off with a drizzle of our Raspberry & Mint dressing - AH-MAY-ZING!

Homemade chilli roasted walnuts
I made these easy roasted walnuts to use a crunchy topping for this spinach raspberry salad. I was looking for something slightly different so I used our sweet chilli dressing. These homemade roasted walnuts are also great in other salads or simply served as a snack.
2 tbs Lincolnshire Drizzle Sweet Chilli Dressing
Salt & pepper
Pre-heat oven to 180C/350 F
Mix the walnuts and honey together until the walnuts are all covered with the dressing
Season well and place the walnuts on a parchment paper covered baking sheet
Bake for about 15-20 minutes, turning the walnuts at least once during that time
