asparagussalad


Wild asparagus have a different flavour from others asparagus (white or green). The flavour is stronger but yet pleasant and the texture is smoother. To make this delicious salad for 3 persons you will need:

  • 200 grams wild asparagus
  • two hearts of cos lettuce
  • 100 grams of a mix of nuts/seeds (I have used almonds, pecan nuts and pine seeds)
  • 1 lemon
  • coconut oil
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • mustard
  • rosemary

Prepare the green leaves by washing them and drying them in a towel.

Cut the stem of the wild asparagus and cook them in water for a couple of minutes (2-4 minutes). Let them cool. In the meantime heat a pan with some coconut oil. Roast the mix nuts/seeds and add a pinch of salt as well as rosemary and mix until the nuts and seeds are well coated. Prepare the dressing with a teaspoon of mustard, 5 table spoons of olive oil, 3 table spoons of lemon, a pinch of salt and some pepper. Arrange the greens, head of wild asparagus and nuts/seeds in a dish and season with the prepared dressing.
