Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus, large spears
  • 3 to 4 small radishes
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 scant teaspoon chopped fresh marjoram
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • Crusty bread, for serving (optional)

Directions

Remove woody ends from asparagus. Using a vegetable peeler, shave asparagus lengthwise. (You can use the trimmings to make soup or stock). Cut radishes into quarters and mix with asparagus in a bowl.

Add lemon juice, zest, vinegar, oil, marjoram, salt and pepper to a jar. Twist the lid on tight and shake well.

Pile asparagus and radishes on a salad plate, much like pasta. Drizzle some of the dressing, to your taste, over the top. Scatter with goat cheese and serve with a nice crusty bread.
