It is here, it is here!!!! The first asparagus has arrived. Not only am I head over heels with this multifaceted vegetable and its fresh sweet taste but it is also the season to see my Granny every Sunday. It’s been a tradition for years and I can hardly wait for Sunday to come. We usually go for the white kind with a Hollandaise, ham and potatoes – nothing special but always perfection. But for my own self, I tried my first experiment with green asparagus.

Here is what I did:

I fried two hands full of green asparagus with one garlic clove for about two minutes, infused it with about two glasses of white vine afterwards, and had it on a low flame for the next ten minutes until the vine vanished. Mix it with red mache salad, tomatoes, roasted sesame seeds, spring onions and a simple olive oil and a balsamic vinegar dressing. Top the best salad for a fan of asparagus with parmesan if you like. MMMhhh…

    I cannot judge the quality of the dish until I have tasted it:)) When´s it going to be served again?
