Asparagus contains large quantities of vitamins A, B and C. Thanks to asparagine, a natural diuretic, they are an excellent food for those suffering from water retention and are low in calories (only 25 per 100 g).
Strawberries are rich in many nutrients such as antioxidants, vitamin C, magnesium and calcium.

Strawberry Asparagus Salad and Balsamic
Ingredients for 4 people
- 1 bunch of green asparagus
- 250 g of strawberries
- Extra Virgin Olive oil
- Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PDO or Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI
We start by carefully washing asparagus with water. After that, we cut the strawberries into two or four pieces according to their size.
Cut the final piece of the asparagus stalk by removing the hard and woody part so that the rest is completely edible.
Cook the asparagus in boiling water for 5 minutes in a pan that can contain them (enough big to put them lying down).
Once cooked, cut them into smaller pieces and place them in a bowl.
At this point, add the strawberries, Extra Virgin Olive oil, salt and season all these ingredients with the Balsamic Vinegar.
If you like you can add some of your favourite salad leaves.
Strawberry Asparagus Salad and Balsamic are ready to be served!
We remind you that Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena must always and only be used raw. Balsamic Vinegar of Modena can be used for cooking (also in a pan on fire).
