Prosciutto and Asparagus Salad

“This is a family-style, go-to dish for me as soon as spring hits.”


900g asparagus, woody ends removed
¼ cup toasted almonds, roughly chopped
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
1 small shallot, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, chopped
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
225g mozzarella, torn into pieces
115g (about 8 slices) prosciutto


Have a large bowl of ice water ready. In a large saucepan, bring 8 cups water to a boil. Lightly salt it, then add the asparagus. Boil for 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Drain and immediately transfer to the ice water for 1 minute to stop the cooking process. Drain again. Cut the asparagus into 5cm pieces and put in a large bowl along with the almonds. In a bowl, whisk the lemon juice, shallot, tarragon, mustard, salt and pepper. While constantly whisking, slowly pour in the oil until well combined. Drizzle the dressing over the asparagus mixture. Toss to combine. Arrange on a platter with the mozzarella and prosciutto surrounding it. Serves 6.
