This light and fresh combination of Mache, Asparagus, Gruyere and Pistachio is brilliant – the nuttiness of the Gruyère complements the pistachios, and the crunch of the asparagus is perfectly balanced by the softness of the Mâche.


1 Mâche
1 bunch Asparagus, raw & cut into 1cm lengths
1/4 cup Gruyère Cheese, grated
1/4 cup Pistachios, roasted
2 tbsp
DRESS IT UP DRESSING Champagne Vinaigrette


Put all the ingredients apart from the Mâche in a bowl and toss well.
Since the Mâche is so tender, it can get bruised quite easily,
so I’d recommend only a brief and gentle toss after adding.

I prefer to use very thin stalks of asparagus for this since they’re raw
and it ensures they are tender.

I take no credit for this salad. I was doing a demo at Whole Foods on P Street
and a woman came up to my table and suggested this combination.
I tried it the next day and fell in love!
