This simple dish makes an elegant starter or side dish, and couldn’t be easier to prepare. Make the dish early in the day, then just throw some meat on the grill at mealtime for a perfectly fuss-free feast.
1. Place the lemon zest, juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a deep-sided bowl.
2. Add the oil in a thin, steady stream while whisking the mixture vigorously to form an emulsion. Set aside.
1. Clean the asparagus (snap the tough end pieces off) and lay the asparagus stalks in a heat-resistant 9” x 13” Pyrex dish.
2. Pour boiling water over the asparagus (just enough to cover it), cover dish with plastic wrap and let sit until the water is slightly warm. This no-fuss method produces perfectly cooked asparagus.
3. Drain water and remove the asparagus to your cutting board and cut the stalks diagonally into two-inch pieces. Set aside.
4. Place the chicken stock and water in a large pot and bring to a boil. Add the salt and turmeric and bring back to a boil.
5. Add the orzo and cook until tender—about 10 to 12 minutes.
6. Drain orzo, but do not rinse it.
7. Place the hot orzo in a spacious, heat-resistant bowl and add the asparagus and green onions. Whisk the dressing if needed and pour it over the salad. Mix well.
8. Cool to room temperature. Adjust seasonings as needed before serving.
9. Decorate with the lemon slices.
You will not find Fleischomeletten on a Swiss restaurant menu. You will find them—made with care and greeted with enthusiasm—in Swiss homes. They are a treasured feature of Swiss celebrations at home. The joyful observance of Easter with family and friends seems a fitting occasion to serve them.
