Roasted asparagus salad on a creamy strawberry vinaigrette – a healthy and quick to make vegan spring salad.
Spring is the season of fresh asparagus! Freshly roasted green and white asparagus on a strawberry vinaigrette is the way to enjoy it. If you don’t like strawberries, don’t worry. I am going to show you an alternative dressing.
What I like most about this asparagus salad is, that you can eat it either warm or cold and serve it along with grilled dishes or as an appetizer.
This dish is light, healthy, and delicious. No worrying about calories. 🙂
Asparagus Salad Recipe
- Trim off the tough ends of the asparagus. Peel the white ones just under the head – no need to peel green asparagus.→ The head is the best part of the white asparagus. It’s soft, full of taste, but also very delicate. Touch it with care.
- Chop them diagonally into thin slices and wash thoroughly. → This cut allows a quick roasting time and a full flavor.
- Roast the chopped asparagus for 5-10 minute in a skillet with olive oil. → They are still crispy after 5″ and soft after 10″.
- Toss with the dressing and serve warm or let it cool down.
The salad can be stored in the fridge for maximum one day.
- You can make this salad with either only green or white asparagus.
- Add a handful of freshly chopped strawberries for an asparagus strawberry salad.
