Yield: 4 Servings             Prep Time: 20 Mins             Total Time: 20 mins

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb Asparagus
  • Extra Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2-3 cups Spinach
  • 2 oz Goat Cheese
  • 2 Roasted Red Bell Peppers
  • Handful Pine Nuts
  • 2 Scallions

Dressing

  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Garlic Clove (grated, pressed or diced)
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard (the real stuff)
  • 4 Table Spoons Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 400. Clean and trim the asparagus. Place in an oven-proof dish and toss with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast asparagus for 15 to 20 minutes until tender. Remove asparagus from the oven and let cool on plate.
  2. While the asparagus is cooling, cut your roasted red peppers into thin slices and chop your scallions.
  3. Then make the dressing by whisking lemon juice, dijon mustard and garlic in a small bowl. Slowly add the olive oil in a steady stream while whisking (this will allow the dressing to emulsify). Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Once asparagus has cooled, cut into bite sized pieces.
  5. Place the spinach in a serving bowl and add cut asparagus, roasted peppers, scallions, goat cheese and top with pine nuts.
  6. Toss with salad dressing before serving or drizzle dressing on top.
