Salad #18 - Raw Asparagus, Tomato and Basil Salad with a Grainy Mustard Dressing
  • Ingredients
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 pint of small tomatoes (two different sizes or colors are nice)
  • 1 bunch of basil
  • 1 yellow pepper chopped
  • Grainy Mustard Dressing Ingredient
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grainy mustard
  • salt and pepper
  1. Snap the woody end off the asparagus. Chop the asparagus and yellow pepper into bite sized pieces, and slice the tomatoes in half. Chop the basil into small pieces.
  2. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small container with a lid and shake well or in a small bowl and whisk.
  3. Add the dressing to the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Start with about half the dressing. You want the vegetables to be well covered but not sopping.
