What do I need?

  • 1 ½ bunches asparagus, woody ends removed, cut in half

How do I make it?

  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl with cold water and ice.
  2. Add asparagus and peas to the boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes or until they start to become tender. Drain and put in the ice bath until completely cooled. When cooled drain and remove excess water with paper towel.
  3. Add baby spinach, radish slices, cucumber, peas and asparagus to a salad bowl.
  4. Make vinaigrette by adding all ingredients to a blender and blitzing until combined.
  5. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad and serve.


-        You can use frozen peas if fresh are unavailable. Cook them for the same time as the fresh peas.

-        The vinaigrette can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. It will keep for 4 days. Shake well before serving.
