You can serve this as a side salad, or pile it on top of bruschettas, or a plain mozzarella pizza. You could just as easily swap the mint for basil or parsley, or the manchego cheese for another semi hard sheep or goat cheese.

Serves 2-3 as a side dish, or 1 as a main with a poached egg, or grilled sourdough.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

  1. Remove the ends of the asparagus then very finely slice the asparagus diagonally. Finely shave the manchego cheese.
  2. In a bowl mix the asparagus, cheese and mint leaves together. Sprinkle over the salt, then whisk together the oil and lemon juice and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
