Recipe: Asparagus and Citrus Salad

Asparagus and Citrus Salad
Recipe adapted from from For the Love of Salad, by Jeanelle Mitchell

Ingredients:
1 pound asparagus
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1 teaspoon citrus zest
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
4 pieces citrus, peeled and sectioned

Method:
Rinse and trim the asparagus by snapping off the tough ends. Cook the asparagus in a large skillet of salted boiling water for about 2-3 minutes. Drain the asparagus and rinse it under cold water to stop it from cooking any more. Blot dry with a clean kitchen towel and set it aside.

To make the dressing whisk together the shallots, orange zest, and orange juice in a small bowl. Add the olive oil, sesame oil, a nice pinch of coarse salt and a few rounds of the pepper grinder and whisk until well combined.

Place the asparagus on a platter and drizzle with the dressing. Surround the asparagus with the citrus and sprinkle everything with the sesame seeds.
