Chilled Asparagus Salad with Lemon Pepper dressing. Great for Mother’s Day!

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Asparagus (rinsed)
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Black Pepper
  • ½ whole Lemon, Juice And Zest

Preparation

Chop the asparagus into small pieces.

Put the asparagus and a splash of water in a pot on the stove top. Cover with a lid and cook on medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until the asparagus turns bright green.

Turn off the heat and transfer the asparagus to the ice bath. Allow to sit in the ice water for a couple of minutes.

Drain and transfer to a mixing bowl.

I was making a cold poke tuna salad to go with this, so I put this together with warm asparagus. This was excellent!
