Asparagus Salad with Strawberries, Recipe with a Secret Ingredient

Today I’ll show you my recipe for asparagus salad with strawberries. This is a wonderful dish because green asparagus with strawberries harmonizes perfectly.

Green asparagus is twice the fun in the kitchen. It tastes great and is prepared very quickly, because the green asparagus can only be peeled briefly on the underside. 

I cook the asparagus briefly after preparation, then the asparagus is put into the grill pan.

As a secret ingredient to the asparagus with strawberries I have chosen balsamic vinegar. I cook the balsamic vinegar briefly in a pot at high heat. The reduced balsamic vinegar is then a balsamic ice cream. This “thick” balsamico sauce tastes very strong and hardly melts on the plate, harmonizes perfectly with strawberries and asparagus.

The asparagus salad with strawberries is a great starter. Surprise your guests and your loved ones with this dish. Good luck! If you have any questions, please use the comment function at the bottom of this page.
