Method

  1. Peel the asparagus bases with a swivel peeler and trim the woody ends. Blanch in boiling salted water for 1½-2 mins until just tender. Drain and refresh under cold running water.
  2. Trim the base of the lettuce leaves and arrange on a large shallow bowl or platter. Scatter over the asparagus spears and red onion, season well and drizzle with vinaigrette just before serving.
