Asparagus is so delicious with its wonderfully subtle flavor that seems to work well with almost anything. It’s a great addition to any summer salad and makes for a tasty side dish with almost any meal.
Asparagus and Mango Salad
For the salad:
- 500 g green asparagus
- 2 small or 1 large firm but ripe mangos, peeled and finely sliced
- 1 red onion, finely chopped
- 1 bunch cilantro, leaves removed
For the dressing:
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 5 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 fresh red chili, seeded and chopped
Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus. Blanch the asparagus in plenty of boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes (depending on thickness). Remove with tongs, or drain in a colander, and immediately transfer to icy cold water to cool. Remove from the cold water and drain well.
In a small bowl, combine the dressing ingredients.
Toss the asparagus, mango slices, red onion and cilantro with the dressing and serve.
