A small salad comprising of asparagus, lightly sauteed with olive oil and garlic, thinly sliced tomatoes and rocket. Have I told you I have been going crazy for asparagus lately? Seems like the appropriate time for that.
Layer the ingredients, starting with the tomatoes at the bottom, then the asparagus and top off with the rocket. Dress the salad with salt, olive oil and red balsamico.

Rocket, my dear, is an awesome leaf vegetable which is mainly served fresh and as a component in salads. It's got spiky green leaves and a distinct, spicy peppery taste that's unmistakeable. It's a thing I often get cravings for. It's an incredible match with red balsamico and tomatoes. It is also called arugula or ruccola. It might take a bit of getting used to as a flavour, but you'll be glad you tried it.

Here are a couple of links:
