Asparagus salad

Light and healthy salad with asparagus, serrano ham, manchego cheese and tomatoes in honey – tarragon sauce. Ideal for quick lunch and very easy to prepare. Remember to remove the wooden ends of asparagus before grilling. Grill for 2 – 3 minutes on each side only, to keep the asparagus al dente and crunchy. It’s best to use fresh tarragon, the dried one doesn’t have the same aroma. Serve decorated with manchego cheese shavings with crusty, multigrain bread. Enjoy.
