Cold Asparagus Salad

You gotta love summer !! I got a bunch of these delicious green crisp Asparagus and I couldn’t wait to do something with them. Now one rule I have for Asparagus is I cannot see them cut, chopped, sliced .. That’s just a crime !! against Asparagus..

So I am going to make us something that just subtly enhances the beautiful fresh nutty flavor of this wonderful vegetable and keeps its shape.

Cold Asparagus Salad with a raspberry vinaigrette

1 Bunch of fresh asparagus (snapped at the ends to remove the hard stalky part)

Raspberry vinaigrette

2 Tbsp Raspberry Vinegar

2 Tbsp OO

1 Tbsp Honey

Salt and pepper

Shake the above in a glass jar till the mixture thickens.

Blanch the asparagus in boiling salt water for 3-4 minutes. Drain and submerge the asparagus in ice cold water for about 5 minutes. This will instantly stop the cooking process and keep the asparagus green. Drain and chill the asparagus for a couple of hours.

Toss with the vinaigrette and serve chilled.
