This is a really exciting recipe. Its perfect for spring. I first found it in a swiss cooking magazine and tried it because it was seasonal and I had strawberries on hand. The mix of flavours is so delicate and delicious it shouldnt be overlooked because of the ingredients. The colour is beautiful. One has to be a bit adventerous, but its worth it!
