Asparagus was on offer at Aldi so I thought I’d use it in a salad seeing as it was a sunny day! I’m not a fan of a dull salad but give me a plate full of variety and taste and I’m all over it! This is an example of the type of salad I might dish up to the family!
Tomatoes (get some that were grown in your own country or nearby you- makes all the difference to the taste)
Avocado (I ended up not using mine as it was past its best when I cut it open)
3 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1-2 tsp paprika
Salt & pepper
Start with a layer of shredded lettuce followed by a few rocket leaves
Next scatter on some spring onion and cucumber
Some thinly sliced mushroom and chopped red pepper
Pop your asparagus spears into a bowl with a tablespoon of water and cover with cling film. Poke a few holes in the cling film then microwave for 3mins. Leave in the covered bowl for a further 1-3mins depending on how soft you want it.
In a bowl whisk together the yoghurt, oil, vinegar, lemon juice and paprika then season with salt & pepper to taste
Arrange the smoked salmon on top of the salad
Do the same with the steamed asparagus and then put a handful of prawns on top
