Salad in a jar

Mix fresh, sweet tart fruits with asparagus, lime juice and roasted garlic for a deliciously different salad.

Serves: 4 people


1 medium, peeled and chopped paw-paw
1 punnet (250 g), hulled strawberries
200 g asparagus
1 bulb garlic
50 ml olive oil
20 ml fresh lime juice
salt and pepper
A handful of small (micro-greens) salad leaves


Blanch the asparagus in boiling, salted water for four minutes or until bright green and just tender. Strain and refresh immediately in ice-cold water. Braai or roast the garlic bulb for 40 minutes at 200 °C till soft. Combine the olive oil, lime juice and roasted garlic, and season to taste. Add dressing to the salad, toss together, pour into a jar and sprinkle with micro-greens.
