Salade Parisienne with Asparagus

15 mins
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • 1/2 head red leaf lettuce
  • 1/2 lb. fresh or frozen asparagus
Prepare the salad:

Wash lettuce, dry thoroughly, and break into bite-size pieces, discarding heavy center stalk. Break and discard heavy ends from asparagus and plunge, whole, into boiling water for 3-5 minutes or until bright green and tender-crisp. Remove from water, drain well, and cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Combine with lettuce.

  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Sea salt (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • Fresh ground black pepper
Prepare the dressing:

Place oil, lemon juice, mustard and sea salt to taste in measuring cup. Skewer garlic on fork, and whip dressing with garlic fork. Pour over salad. Add pepper to taste and toss well.
