Asparagus salad

As summer gets underway, now is the perfect time to prepare this fresh and delicious asparagus salad.

 

Ingredients

 

Dressing 

 

Champagne vinegar

Lemon 

Olive oil 

Salt and pepper 

 

Salad 

 

Asparagus 

A leafy green - I prefer frisée for texture

Tomato 

Bell Pepper

Cucumber

Grapes

Feta

Mint leaves

 

Breadcrumb Topping 

 

Parmesan

Breadcrumbs

Canola oil 

 

Instructions

 

First, make your breadcrumb topping by putting a pan on medium heat.

Add a 2:1 bread to grated parmesan ratio to the pan.

 

Add some canola oil and mix until your breadcrumbs have a sandy texture. Toss and fry until golden brown. Set aside.

 

Dressing 

 

Mix 2:1 olive oil to champagne vinegar.  

 

Take half a lemon and squeeze slowly, tasting until you have the acidity you like.

 

Season with salt and pepper.

 

Salad 

 

For the salad, chop your lettuce, cucumber, pepper, and tomato.

 

Cut the asparagus and boil in salted water for 2-3 minutes, until bright green but still crisp. Remove and let dry on a towel.

 

Slice your grapes in half.

 

Slice mint finely.

 

Mix everything and top with breadcrumbs mix and feta cheese.

 

Add some nice whole mint leaves on top.

 

Enjoy!
