A sort-of French salad… with Biltong
This salad with a slight French twist packs a right punch. Enjoy whilst sitting in the sun and taking in some rays.
· 450g green asparagus, ends trimmed
· 85g your favourite biltong
· 4 large, hard-boiled eggs, peeled and halved
· 2 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
· 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
· 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
· 1 tbsp sesame oil
· 1 garlic clove, minced
· 1 pinch sea salt
· 1 pinch red chilli flakes
Cut the trimmed asparagus into 1 to 2" (3-5 cm) segments. Bring a large salted pot of water to a boil. Once the water has come to a rolling boil, drop the asparagus in and boil for 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the asparagus from the boiling water and transfer to an ice bath to stop the cooking process and lock in the colour. In a small mixing bowl, combine the oil, vinegar, mustard, sesame oil, garlic, salt, and pepper flakes. Whisk to combine. Plate the asparagus in a large serving dish. Sprinkle the biltong over top and arrange the hard-boiled eggs. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Serve any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
