I don’t know what it is about summer, but it makes me want to have treats!
Like ice cream and nachos and slushy drinks.
And I don’t have strong power so I usually end up giving in.
I felt like I needed a detox.
So I made this salad.
It’s inspired by a salad I had at a restaurant in Washington that had spinach, asparagus, avocado and feta in it.
I’m sure bacon would make a delightful addition if you’re so inclined. I didn’t because I was trying to be less gluttonous.
Grilled Asparagus and strawberry Salad
Serves 1 entrée size
2 cups salad greens (I used a spring mix)
10 asparagus spears, woody parts of stems removed
1/2 avocado, diced
6-8 strawberries, stems removed and sliced
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
Your favorite raspberry vinaigrette, to taste
Heat grill or grill pan to medium heat. Toss asparagus spears in a small drizzle of olive oil. Grill until tender and lightly marked with grill lines (about 5 minutes).
Put greens, berries, avocado, asparagus, and cheese in a bowl or on a large plate. Top with desired amount of vinaigrette and toss to combine.
