Asparegus & Herb Salad


1 pack leafy green salad mix (or make your own with your favorites)

1 can black beans, rinsed

1 fennel

1 pot parsley

1 pot thai basil

1 pot chives

1 bunch asparagus, bottom trimmed off

1 lime

1 decilitre olive oil

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp lemon juice

salt/ pepper


Wash and rinse the leafy greens and black beans if they are not already, let drip off and set aside in a bowl. Chop the fennel in thin slices, preferably with a mandolin. Roughly chop the herbs and put everything in the salad bowl. Lightly mix it up with your hands. Bring water to a boil and snap the bottom of the asparegus off- this is rather bitter and not so delicious-tasting, we don't want that! Boil the top of the asparagus for 2-3 minutes and rinse the water off. In a small jar, mix olive oil, honey and lemon and shake it up until mixed. Lay it all up on the platter with the salad mix first, then asparagus. Finish it off by drizzling some lovely vinaigrette on top. Season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy and feel energized!
