ZESTY ASPARAGUS SALAD

Asparagus has always been one of my favourite vegetables, be it in a salad, grilled or boiled. Was tired of eating calorie rich food, so for a change decided to make a healthy light salad.

This is what you’ll need

Asparagus: 1 bunch ( around 8-10 tips)

Mixed salad leaves: A handful

Cherry tomatoes: 6 (halved)

Red onion: 1/2 (sliced)

Orange: 1 (peeled and sliced)

Sesame or poppy seeds: To garnish

For the dressing

Virgin olive oil: 2tsp

Orange juice: 3tbsp

Orange zest: 1/2tsp

Vinegar: 1/2tsp

Sugar: A pinch (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste

Let’s get cooking

1. Boil the asparagus for 2 minutes, drain and keep aside.

2. Prepare the dressing by mixing all the ingredients listed under dressing.

3. On a plate spread the mixed salad greens.

4. Top with the cherry tomatoes and sliced onions.

5. Add the asparagus and oranges.

6. Lastly sprinkle the dressing evenly over the salad.

7. Garnish with sesame or poppy seeds and serve immediately.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 10 minutes

Serves: 2-3
