Mixed salad with asparagus and orange (light recipe) 1 Picture


  • 1 bunch green asparagus

  • Half 1 bunch watercress
  • 3 radishes (because I had some leftover in the fridge)

  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp mustard

Step 1

- Take the raw asparagus. Cut into thin strips.
- Break the ends off the asparagus (I didn't peel mine because they were small) and cook them for 8 minutes in a dish in the microwave in well-salted water. Once cooked, plunge them immediately in very cold water to stop the cooking process and keep the vibrant green color.
- Wash watercress. Remove the first couple peels of fennel to have only the tender leaves and cut very thin.
- Cut radishes
- Peel the orange and detach the segments. One half of the orange is enough.
- Use the other half for juice. You should have about 2 tbsp.
- Put the juice into a bowl, add the mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper, add oil, then the water, which will bind the dressing. Whisk

Step 2

Garnish the plates, add the ham (the kind you like) and pour the dressing over the ingredients.
