An Italian asparagus salad is a very good alternative to classic asparagus recipes.


  • Cook asparagus approx. 14 min into salted water with a pinch of sugar. Drain and let it cool down. Cut the asparagus in ca. 5 cm long pieces.
  • Chop basil and prepare vinaigrette with olive oil, balsamico, sugar, salt, pepper.
  • Dice mozzarella. Cut tomatoes into quarters.
  • Arrange mozzarella, tomatoes and asparagus on a plate. Sprinkle with vinaigrette.
