manauka honey recipes

When it comes to summer recipes, we want to try to keep them fast and light. This summer salad is a great way to enjoy the incredible flavor of raw honey without actually packing on the calories. It will only take a few minutes to make and they will be minutes well spent, as your guests will be smacking their lips looking for more when they take the last forkful, this we assure you. If you are using Manuka honey, you may be best served to slightly warm the honey before making the recipe to ensure it combines well with the other ingredients.

To Make:
