Ingredients

  • .5 loaf peasant bread - Sliced thinly
  • 1 c asparagus - tips
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 c romaine lettuce - packed
  • 1/2 small red onion - thinly sliced
  • 1 c Arugula
  • 6 oz chèvre goat cheese
  • 1 beet - very thinly sliced
  • 2 plum tomatoes - quartered
  • 1/4 c red onion
  • 1/2 c walnuts - chopped
  • 1/4 c balsamic glaze

For Dressing

  • 1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil - plus more for brushing
  • 1/4 c red wine vinegar
  • 2 T dijon mustard
  • 2 T honey - local

Instructions

  • Spread the bread pieces on a baking sheet and brush lightly with olive oil. Bake for about 6 minutes, until slightly crispy.
  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the asparagus until just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, cool and cut the asparagus.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, honey, and mustard. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • In a large bowl, toss the asparagus, tomatoes, toasted bread, greens, and onion. Drizzle with the dressing and toss. 
  • Garnish with beets and goat cheese cut into round slices.  Top with chopped walnuts.
  • Drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve

Notes

 
 
Suggested Wine Pairing: Try a citrusy white wine, like a Sauvignon Blanc or non-oaked chardonnay or Pouilly-Fumé.  Another option would be my favorite – try a white blend, like Conundrum, a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Muscat Canelli, and Viognier grapes.
