Asparagus and Red Onion Salad with Cos Lettuce

Cos, asparagus & red onion salad

Well, I'm certainly not Gordon Ramsay - nor am I Delia - but I do my best to make a great tasting summer salad. This recipe is a Gordon Ramsay inspired idea and this is how he prepares a nice light and summery salad ...

Serves Eight
3g carbs per serving
300g asparagus spears
1 large or 2 medium Cos lettuce
1 red onion, thinly sliced
3-4 tbsp vinaigrette, preferably homemade


1. Peel the asparagus bases with a swivel peeler and trim the woody ends. Blanch in boiling salted water for 1½-2 mins until just tender. Drain and refresh under cold running water.

2. Trim the base of the lettuce leaves and arrange on a large shallow bowl or platter. Scatter over the asparagus spears and red onion, season well and drizzle with vinaigrette just before serving.

Helpful Tip:
Gordon's know-how .. his quick way to prepare asparagus. Simply bend each spear and snap where you feel it naturally give, breaking off the woody end.

Just enjoy whole real food ... you can see the original recipe idea here

Bon Appetit

All the best Jan
