Strawberry, cherry and raspberry salad with raspberry sorbet

Not just a pretty plate - this dessert bursts with bright berry flavour. Start this recipe a day ahead to freeze the sorbet.


  • 250 gm strawberries, sliced (about 1 punnet)
  • 125 gm raspberries (about 1 punnet)
  • 12 cherries, halved and pitted
  • 2 tbsp rice malt syrup
  • ½ tsp rosewater, or to taste
Raspberry sorbet
  • 500 gm fresh or frozen raspberries (about 4 punnets)
  • 150 gm rice malt syrup


  • 1
    For raspberry sorbet, purée raspberries, 90gm malt syrup and 90ml water in a food processor until smooth, then strain through a fine sieve. Divide among ice-cube trays (or place ¼ cup purée in separate snap-lock bags) and freeze overnight. Transfer cubes to a food processor, add remaining malt syrup and 1 tbsp water and process until smooth, then freeze until just firm. Sorbet is best eaten within two days. Makes about 500ml.
