A Simple Salad

Posted by Bronte Aurell | Food & Recipes

A simple, but delicious, little salad

It’s nearly the end of Asparagus and broad bean season, so best make this delicious little side salad this week:


  • 1 bunch of British asparagus
  • 100-150g podded broad beans (do double pod)
  • Shavings of Västerbotten cheese
  • Dressing made of 2 tbsp good olive oil, 1 tbsp white wine vinegar and 1 tbsp balsamic. Add a pinch of sugar, salt and pepper and whisk.
  • Fresh tarragon, to taste

How to:

Cook the beans in boiling water for 1-2 minutes, then throw in the Asparagus and cook for a further 2 minutes of cooking. Plunge into ice-cold water to stop the cooking process.

Arrange the asparagus on a plate, add the beans. Chop some fresh tarragon and scatter over. Add shavings of cheese, to taste, as top with dressing.

Serve immediately.
