Although I am now entering the winter months here in Australia, I am only too aware that over in the UK and Europe you guys are coming into summer – and being a Brit, the Aussie winter feels a lot like summer to me anyway. So I have been experimenting with new salads this week and this recipe here alongside my next post (which is going to be another salad) are my current favourites.
Snow Pea & Asparagus Salad
2 cups snow peas
1 bunch fresh asparagus
1/2 packet fresh bean sprouts
1 cup spinach
Sprinkling of pine nuts
Cold pressed olive oil
- Very lightly steam the asparagus and snow peas, for 3-6 minutes
- Let these ingredients cool slightly while you mix all of the other ingredients into a large bowl
- Now add in the asparagus and snow peas and season lightly
- As an option squeeze fresh lemon or lime juice over the salad and serve!
