Ingredients for 4 portions (starter)

1 bunch green asparagus
200g strawberries
2 handfuls tender spinach
1 handful walnuts
100g feta
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. raspberry vinegar
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper

Method

  1. First cut the woody ends off the asparagus and then cut the spears into pieces at a slight angle. Remove the stalks from the strawberries and cut the strawberries into quarters.
  2. Heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan and lightly fry the asparagus pieces on a medium heat for about 8-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Roughly chop the walnuts. Make the dressing by mixing the olive oil with the vinegar, plus a little salt and pepper.
    Tip: the walnuts can also be briefly roasted in the pan.
  4. To serve, place the washed spinach in a bowl with the asparagus, strawberries and crumbled feta. Pour the dressing over the salad and sprinkle with the walnuts.

The health benefits of asparagus

Asparagus consists mainly of water and is therefore very low in calories. Despite its high water content, the precious vegetable – green or white – not only contains plenty of minerals, such as calcium and potassium, but vitamins too.

But please note: asparagus also has a diuretic effect. People with kidney problems should therefore eat it with caution.
