Avocado & Asparagus Salad
This is a great light dish especially when the weather is nice. For fun, add prawns for protein!


1lb fresh asparagus
8 medium sliced fresh mushrooms OR 1 1/2 cups snow peas
1 medium diced zucchini
1 large ripe avocado, peeled and cubed (note: avocado can be replaced by other vegetable)
1 large tomato chopped
1 medium sliced red onion
2 T lemon juice
2 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 minced garlic clove
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper


Steam asparagus or par-boil, drain and cool

Combine the asparagus, mushrooms, avocado, zucchini, tomato and onion and toss gently

In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the remaining ingredients (dressing) and poor over salad tossing gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate until served.
