A looking salad combining baby tomatoes, a tomatillo, baby asparagus and avocado and tossed in a so moreish tomato dressing. A tomatillo looks like a tomato but is green (and sticky, so needs a good rinse) and if you can’t find one just omit from recipe. Dressing is divine!
1 cup of little cubes of avocado (about 1 good sized avocado) – stirred with a tsp. of lemon juice to prevent browning
1 tomatillo – rinsed and cut into chunks
16 cherry tomatoes – quartered
1 pound of baby asparagus – cut off tips and another slice the same length from the stems and save the rest for something else (soup maybe?)
Place chunks of avocado and tomatillo, quartered tomatoes and asparagus in a serving dish.
Combine dressing ingredients (see below) and pour some (not all) over salad or let people add their own amount.
1 cup passata (pulped tomatoes)
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 large clove garlic – grated
