Asparagus Salad

Asparagus Salad

The asparagus season is on its way. Each year I’m looking forward to test different delicious dishes. The fruity and refreshing recipe below is one of my favorites. The Chef’s Handyman team is hooked on asparagus, especially this fruity version is just mouth-watering. Have a try.

Asparagus with Oranges and Grapefruits

Steam the asparagus or cook them in salt water with a dash of sugar until soft.  It depends on the size of the stalks. Take them out and cut the bars in pieces. Place them on the plates.

Meanwhile filet two oranges and one grapefruit. Place the slices on top of the asparagus. Sprinkle them with lemon juice, lemon rind and olive oil. Season the salad to taste with salt and black pepper. Garnish with peppermint leaves. Serve the salad lukewarm.

Shopping for the asparagus salad for 4 dishes, 1 package of white and green asparagus, 2-3 lemons, 2 oranges, 1 grapefruit, olive oil, salt, black pepper, 1 bunch peppermint.

Bon Appetite, enjoy the asparagus salad with oranges & grapefruits, yours Chef’s Handyman team.
