Warm Tomato & Asparagus Salad

Expectations:

I have a pattern… you may have noticed my affection for quick salads that are warm. 🙂 This one’s great, super easy as with all of the others it will take you very little time, about 5 to 6 minutes, to pull together.

Serves 4.

Ingredients:

  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 or 5 asparagus spears – tough stem ends removed, cut into 1 inch pieces.
  • One large tomato – cut into cubes, rounds or half moons
  • Optional:  1 to 2 cups of fresh baby spinach leaves (rinsed)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Steps to put this on your table:

  1. In about 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, sauté the asparagus pieces (stirring constantly to prevent burning) over medium high heat until softened (about 5 minutes).
  2. Add the spinach (if using) and sauté for another minute until the spinach is wilted. remove from he heat and put the spinach, asparagus and tomato into a small bowl.  Add another 1 or 2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Toss gently to combine, serve and enjoy!
