Asparagus and Spinach Salad with Ham and Goat Cheese, Spring — 8 Comments

  1. I may well be having one of those four hour lunches myself today – we are headed for a lavender farm, google it – Lavendula.

  2. I have plants poking their heads up! And the snow is gone, hopefully for good. It was a beautiful day out today so everyone sat outside while I finished making dinner. We had asparagus. It was $1.19 per pound at the grocery and it stayed well in the fridge for two days. I roasted it with a bit of olive oil and minced fresh garlic. It was very tasty.

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a slow spring as you’re describing – of if I have, it’s so many years back, I can’t remember 😉 But then I have lived in the midwest much of my life and so often spring feels like an extension of winter that suddenly explodes into blazingly hot summer… Love this hearty but light salad for a spring dinner…

  4. I like the asparagus on the spinach – perfect Spring salad!

    We’re having a late Spring – there should be spinach… sometime… but nothing is in yet. And we never see asparagus until late May or even June. I am so looking forward to it!

  5. Now that is a salad I want to eat! All my favourite things 🙂 And I am so with you – slow Spring here is my favourite time of year. Thanks for entering this perfect little salad into Four Seasons Food x

  6. Kate, it looks lovely – hope the lunch was long and relaxing.

    nightsmusic, it sounds like you have spring finally….How lovely to be able to sit outside again, isn’t it?

    Mimi, I was surprised, actually. I didn’t do well in the Vendee but the weather seemed milder there. I think it’s the location here…. a little micro-climate.

    Tanna, I miss basil, too – I bought a plant the other day. Hopefully I can put it in the ground soon.

    Javelin Warrior, as a former Mid-Westerner…. No, spring are not slow there but they are, occasionally, non-existent LOL

    Anne, I’m still surprised when I start seeing asparagus in April… and artichokes. Spinach is almost year-round.

    annelifaiers, this year was even slower than normal – my plum trees bloomed in Feb. But we had no snow this winter, that may have helped.
