Asparagus salad with goat's cheese and caramelized balsamic onions
And that's really the tastiest recipe I've made during this year's season!
I have that Recipe in the LECKER issue of May 2012 found and thought it at first pretty nondescript. But now I can say: that is deceptive. The recipe is simply awesome and reveals a great variety of flavors.
And I've already noticed that asparagus goes well with goat's cheese with my tarte flambée with white asparagus, goat's cheese, tomatoes and rocket.
I just say that Let's take a look at the recipe and look forward to the 2013 asparagus season! Asparagus salad with goat's cheese and caramelized balsamic onions
