Raw Asparagus, Egg & Salami Salad

This salad is lovely for a light lunch and is best enjoyed with really fresh spears. Try the purple variety for a change.

This recipe is really easy and you can add your own ideas with different salad vegetables to suit your tastes.

Cooking Time: 8 mins  
Prep Time:      10 mins
Serves:              4


A fresh lettuce - chose your favourite or a range of fresh salad leaves(straight from the garden will always taste best)

16 - 20 thin asparagus spears as fresh as possible - a variety that eats well raw

small block of parmesan cheese to grate

2-8 tomatoes depending on their type (more small ones or fewer big ones) small tasty vine tomatoes will taste best

6 slices of salami

3 hard boiled eggs (peeled and sliced)

small tin of sweetcorn

A nice light mayonaise


  1. Wash and chop the salad and place on plates

  2. Wash the asparagus, snap off the ends and cut into inch long pieces sprinkle on the salad

  3. Place chopped tomatoes, sweetcorn and hard boiled egss on plate ( be a bit decorative!)

  4. Chop the salami into small pieces and sprinkle on top

  5. Grate parmesan over the whole lot
  6. Finally add a little of your favourite mayonaise and ENJOY....,

Note : I would not recommend pre-grated parmesan cheese, and if you've tried it and think you don't like parmesan cheese - try the real thing and think again! The blocks seem expensive when you buy them but the last block I bought for about £5 has lasted from Valentines Day to mid June and is still going strong. The flavour is amazing.
