Asparagus Red Onion Salad
- serves 4
A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason, this is also an account of what happens when I make this dish, so you’ll understand each step. Of course when you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don’t like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own!
Asparagus is my son Gabe’s favourite vegetable so I’ve invented a lot of ways to serve it to keep him from getting bored. Here it stars in a tasty salad that grown-ups will love too!
