Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Serves 4 Prep: 5 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Asparagus 200g
Red pepper 1/4
Yellow pepper 1/4
Celery 1
Cucumber 5cm
Cherry tomatoes 5
●Olive oil 5 tbsp
●White wine vinegar 4 tbsp
●Garlic puree 1 tsp
●Salt & pepper as you like
●Sugar 1 tsp
●Honey 1 tsp
●Italian herbs as you like

Method

1
Chop all the salad vegetables except the asparagus.
2
Make the salsa: put all the ●ingredients in a large bowl together with Step 1 and mix well. Keep in the fridge for 30 minutes.
3
The vegetables will release some moisture. The oil and vinegar will be diluted by this water, so it won't be too sharp.
4
Dry fry the asparagus in a frying pan for 1 minute on high heat. Turn off the heat and allow to finish cooking on residual heat.
5
Allow to cool then place on a serving dish and cover with the salsa on top.

Tips & Note

Keep the asparagus nice and crunchy for good texture. It will be a disaster if you overcook them so don't be afraid to let it cook on residual heat! You could add some raisins or 2-3 anchovy fillets, for a totally different taste.
