Asparagus Ribbon Salad with Cucumber, Radish, and Sun-blush Tomatoes

21 Apr

We had some smoked sun-blush tomatoes left over from the Northern Vegan festival and created this amazing salad! We used the delicious Tuscan Kiss herb blend from the Avanti Natural Store (which is absolutely divine) but if you don’t have some at hand you can add some extra dried basil and orange zest.

Ingredients: I pack of asparagus (about 12 spears), half a cucumber, a handful of radishes, 1 tsp orange zest, handful chopped parsley, handful of smoked sun-blush tomatoes (use normal sunblushed or sundried if you don’t want to smoke them), 1 clove garlic (fine chopped), salt and pepper, 2-3 tsp tuscan kiss herb blend, 3 tbsp orange juice, 2 tbsp olive oil

Make ribbons out of the asparagus by shaving strips off down the entire length with a vegetable peeler and add to your mixing bowl. Thinly slice the cucumber and radish and add to the bowl alongside the garlic, herbs, and tomatoes. Combine the orange juice and olive oil, salt and pepper and toss through the salad. Delicious!
