Spring Asparagus & Berry Salad

Serves 4-6

 

Instructions:

In a large bowl, toss the asparagus with 1 tbsp. O&CO. Everyday Oil.  Spread on a baking sheet, sprinkle with O&CO. Fleur de Sel Natural Sea Salt and pepper.  Bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Set aside.

To make vinaigrette:  in a small glass or stainless steel bowl, add the O&CO. Raspberry Vinegar and slowly drizzle in the O&CO. Finca La Gramanosa Olive Oil and continually whisk to incorporate.  Continue to add the olive oil, a little at a time, and whisk until creamy and well blended.  Taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt and pepper to your liking. Set aside. Note:  if you prefer a crunchier salad, the asparagus can be blanched instead of roasted.

In a large salad bowl, add the strawberries, cherry tomatoes, asparagus and raspberries.  Spoon the dressing over the salad and gently toss to coat.  Let the flavors marinate for 5-10 minutes at room temperature before serving.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with fresh country bread.
