    Late spring and all the senses and rejoicing with the coming summer. We long for walks on the beach, summer night dancing parties, abandons of delicious fruits and salads. This simple late spring dish has all the hopes of the days to come. Beetroot and carrot, meet fresh salad leaves and herbs, kissed by fresh raspberries, melting goat cheese and contrasting walnuts all gently coming together with a Raspberry Dressing Sauce.
