Salads today. The first really nice warm day this year, and I didn't really fancy anything heavy at all.
I was so lucky, I won a quiz organized by Aspara Buddies, the Asparagus blog of Hargreaves Plants.
"Congratulations! We will send you some special varieties of asparagus" they said
Look! This is an amazing amount of asparagus! So please expect quite a number of asparagussy dinners in the days to follow..
Today I fancied a light vegetarian dinner, so I made a chunky guacamole, with LOTS of coriander and lime, and paired that with a green salad, containing fresh peas and soya beans, and some lightly blanched green beans and Ariane asparagus.
The spears of this weren't too fat so they sliced beautifully for salad, just a slight hint of background bitterness worked really well with the silky citrus of the guacamole, and the sweetness of the peas and parsley in the green salad.
