Danish Raspberry Dressing/Danske Hindbær Dressing/丹麦山莓沙拉酱

Serves 4

Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes

- 100g frozen or fresh raspberries
- 1 TBS mint leaves minced
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 TBS olive oil
- Dash of salt & pepper to taste

1. Blend raspberries in a blender with sugar.

2. Sift out the seeds from the raspberries using a strainer (optional)

3. Add the minced mint leaves, olive oil and dash of salt & pepper and mix well.

4. Serve with green salat and bread.

Nutritional Value:
Raspberries are an excellent source of fiber, manganese and vitamin C. They are a good source of vitamin B2, folate, niacin, magnesium, potassium and copper. In addition, they contain significant amounts of the anti-cancer phytochemical ellagic acid.

Additional Information:
My camera has malfunctioned, thus I could no longer take any pictures, until we purchase a new one.

I notice that as I grow older, I have the tendency to become more and more Chinese and Singaporean, and my Significant Other more and more Danish. For example, I eat more and more Chinese food, and follow closely the Singaporean election and political scenes, while my Significant Other follows closely the Danish political scenes. So when I am viewing videos and podcast from the Straitstimes, he is watching the Danish news. This is a pit-fall of cross-cultural marriage that we have to prayerfully guard against. Otherwise, we will easily be leading separate lives, with different habits.

The only person who is really doing well cross-culturally is J. Thank God that so far, he seems to be weaving naturally between Danish and Chinese.

The good news is that with God and love for each other, we can always improve. It takes sacrifice, and I pray that as I become more and more Singaporean, that I will also become more and more Danish. That becoming more of one, will not mean become less of the other. Vice versa for my Significant Other.

God always tells me to change myself, and not expecting the other party to change. God says let me decrease and let others increase, yet so often I fail. So today, I will try again, with new forgiveness from God.

So today, I took out the Danish recipes, and make an effort to experiment into making Danish food again.

The original recipe calls for 50ml of olive oil, but I find that 2 TBS are sufficient for us.

You can make this dressing beforehand the night before, put it in the fridge, ready to be used for dinner the next day.
