Ingredients

  • 400g asparagus tips
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 100g mixed salad leaves
  • 125g ricotta
  • 50g pistachio kernels, roughly chopped
For the dressing
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tsp harissa paste (I like rose harissa)
  • 1 heaped tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Step by step

  1. Mix the ingredients for the dressing together, season and set aside.
  2. In a large heatproof bowl, pour enough boiling water over the asparagus tips to cover them – leave the tips for 5 minutes, then drain and rinse them in cold water. Preheat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat.
  3. Return the asparagus tips to the bowl and toss with the olive oil. Now, griddle them, in 2 batches, each for about 4-5 minutes, turning frequently or until char marks appear.
  4. Arrange the salad leaves and asparagus on 4 plates and add a few teaspoonfuls of ricotta to each one.
  5. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with the dressing and finish by scattering the pistachios on top.
Chef quote
This salad is so easy to make. The asparagus is lovely warm from the griddle but can also be cooked ahead and served at room temperature. Serve with chargrilled bread, if you like
