Quick and easy vibrant salad to celebrate the arrival of spring!
Crunchy asparagus, creamy goats cheese and sweet & tangy pomegranates is a match made in flavour heaven.
Its September and the first bunches of asparagus signals the arrival of spring in the organic fields. As an organic and seasonal chef there is nothing more exciting than when my anticipation for new season veggies finally arrives. Its 100% worth the wait. Food grown and eaten in their natural growing season just tastes better.
I only ate my first true asparagus (white canned doesn’t count) when I was 18! It was at La Madeleine in Pretoria and it has been a love affair since.
Pomegranate molasses is a Middle Eastern seasoning consisting of concentrated pomegranate juice. It is usually used in fish and meat dishes, and also as a replacement for vinegar in salads. Its delicious mix between sweet and tart makes it addictive. I love it over ice-cream!
Serves 4 as a side salad or 2 as a main salad
