Here at Honest Cooking we love recipes that are so simple they almost don’t even qualify as recipes. Just a few good ingredients that complement eachother perfectly without the need for more than just a few minutes of work. This one certainly qualifies.

In fact, it’s of the simplest and most delicious desserts I know. A fresh berry salad served with beautiful honey, a refreshing vanilla yoghurt and some chopped almonds. Unless you insist on picking the berries yourself somewhere in a dark forest, this dessert will be done in under 5 minutes from scratch.

And that, friends, is Honest Cooking!
