Recipe:


Serves: 4


Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes

 

Ingredients:


- 2 fennel bulbs, thinly sliced

- 2 bunches of asparagus

- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

- 1 orange bell pepper, thinly sliced

- 1 red onion, thinly sliced

- 4 cups of rocket (arugula)

- Olive oil for grilling

- Salt and pepper to taste


For the Tahini Dressing

- 1/4 cup tahini

- 2 tablespoons lemon juice

- 1 tablespoon maple syrup

- 1/4 cup water

- Salt to taste


 

Method:


1. Preheat your grill or griddle pan over medium-high heat. Toss the asparagus in a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, then grill until tender and slightly charred, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.


2. In a large salad bowl, combine the sliced fennel, red and orange bell peppers, red onion, and rocket.


3. For the tahini dressing, whisk together tahini, lemon juice, maple syrup, water, and salt in a small bowl until smooth. If the dressing is too thick, add a little more water.


4. Chop the cooled asparagus into bite-sized pieces and add them to the salad.



To serve:

Drizzle the tahini dressing over the salad and toss until everything is evenly coated. Serve immediately.


 

Additional Tips:


For an added crunch, consider sprinkling the salad with toasted sesame seeds or slivered almonds before serving.
