I stared at the raspberries and limes near the peaches in the fridge, almost begging to be let out and happened upon this dressing. From here on end, it shall be referred to as the most incredible dressing. Firstly, it's a cheerful, startling, almost lurid pink. Do not let that put you off. It is not pink in any sort of sissy shade. The mixture of lemon infused oil, lemon juice and that heavenly zing of lime, a splosh of honey and the tiniest sprinkle of sea salt flakes, makes this Raspberry Lime Drizzle truly, utterly, last-bit-in-the-bowl lickable.

An adaptation of a sweet tartlet, these savoury asparagus, mini vine tomato and fresh bocconcini pastries use ready rolled butter puff pastry and are drizzled in a thick and rich sweet and slightly tangy crema di balsamico which I love using with sweet fruit as well.
