Asparagus Egg Fetta Salad
Eating healthily isn’t hard to do when you have a variety of fresh produce to choose from. Asparagus is in plentiful supply and relatively cheap at the moment and apart from the health benefits makes a tasty inclusion to any dish.
The asparagus plays centre stage in this Asparagus, Egg and Fetta salad and adds a touch of panache to the meal. It can be served as an alternative to salad, as an entrée or as a share plate in combination with other antipasto ingredients.
This Asparagus, Egg Fetta Salad will bring a touch of panache to your meal.
Asparagus can also successfully be teamed with other cheeses. The rich and earthy tone of the asparagus combines perfectly with the slightly tangy, salty and creamy texture of soft cheeses such as goats cheese which like Fetta can be crumbled over the asparagus.
Harder cheeses such as baked ricotta and parmesan work equally as well.
As an alternative, crumble some baked ricotta cheese over the blanched asparagus.
Asparagus is also a great picnic food, as it travels easily and can be eaten raw or cooked. All the ingredients in this salad can be pre-cooked and packed into airtight containers and can easily be assembled at picnic time.
