Asparagus and orange salad
( SERVES 4 )
New season asparagus tastes delicious and looks quite rustic as it varies in size. This asparagus and orange salad is a tasty meal on its own. The prosciutto can be salty, so be careful not to add extra salt to the salad until it is all combined, while the eggs and avocado add a lovely creamy texture. A warm poached egg is also heavenly served on top.
