Minted Raspberry and Pea Shoot Salad on Brioche

Chef Lorna Murdoch,
fusion grill

Luscious feel of the viscous greens, then staccato bursts of bright berry fruit notes with minty accents. Garden fresh chive froth adds melody, while buttery cashews provide textural punctuation. This light summer salad is served with toasted cashews, chive froth and an ice wine dressing. At home Chef Lorna grows her own mint and chives, saying “these are the only things I can grow well, because I don’t touch them.” At the restaurant she makes her own brioche.
