(Serves 8)

 

Ingredients:

500g large asparagus spears, trimmed

1½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved

2 tbs finely chopped fresh chives

2 tbs fresh lemon juice

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

½ tsp Dijon mustard

¼ tsp sugar

¼ tsp salt

½ cup crumbled goat cheese

 

Method:

Hold each asparagus spear by the tip end. Shave asparagus into ribbons with a paring knife mandolin or vegetable peeler to measure 3 cups. Reserve asparagus tips for another use. Steam them for one minute in the microwave, and then run them under cold water. Combine asparagus and tomatoes in a medium bowl. Whisk together the chives and next 6 ingredients (through ¼ teaspoon salt). Just before serving, drizzle over the asparagus mixture, tossing gently to coat. Top with goat cheese. *Cooking Light*
