Grüner Spargel & Erdbeer Salat

Vegan spring salad with roasted asparagus, lentils and fresh strawberries

I have to admit, I’m not a fan of white asparagus, especially after tasting green asparagus for the first time. It tastes nutty and has only a slight asparagus note. Green asparagus is great as a side dish to fresh salads. My favorite combination is definitely asparagus with strawberries. This combination tastes so fruity and fresh and you only need 3 ingredients: salad, green asparagus and strawberries. The dressing can be varied according to your taste. In my recipe, I use a mild mustard dressing and add some chia seeds as garnish on top.

How do I cook green asparagus?

Green asparagus has a very short cooking time. You can cut off the asparagus ends and let the rods cook in salted water for 10 minutes. The best tastes green asparagus fried. Simply fry the washed and shortened asparagus in a pan for 4-5 minutes. I cut them before into pieces, so I can give them directly over my salad.
