Ingredients

  • 300g asparagus spear
  • 1 large or 2 medium Cos lettuce
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3-4 tbsp vinaigrette, preferably homemade

    Vinaigrette

    vin-uh-gret

    A basic oil and vinegar-based salad dressing usually used to dress salads. A good vinaigrette…

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.
