Prepare the ingredients for the couscous salad: Wash and dry the strawberries briefly, wash the green asparagus and peel at the bottom, prepare the remaining ingredients as indicated.

Prepare lemon juice honey dressing
Mix lemon juice with honey and mustard to make a dressing, finally stir in the oil slowly.

Put the lemon juice with Dijon mustard, honey, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix the ingredients well, then slowly add the walnut oil. The result is an emulsified salad dressing. Prepare the lemon-mustard-honey dressing for marinating.

Fry the bread cubes in butter until crispy.
