Ingredients
  • 20g pine nuts
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • Juice ½ lemon
  • 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ clove garlic, grated
  • 300g Grower's Selection Asparagus
  • 60g bag Asda Wild Rocket
  • 25g basil, roughly torn
  • 100g Extra Special Burrata Mozzarella, roughly torn, at room temperature
Method
  • In a nonstick pan over a medium heat, lightly toast the pine nuts until golden. Remove from the heat and put to one side.

  • Increase the heat of the pan to high and, working in batches, char the lemon slices for 1-2 minutes each side. Put on a plate.

  • For the dressing, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil and garlic. Season with black pepper.

  • Trim the woody stems of the asparagus. Carefully pull a vegetable peeler down the length of the trimmed asparagus to slice it into long ribbons.

  • Toss the asparagus with the rocket, basil, pine nuts, charred lemon slices and dressing. Top with the Burrata and serve immediately.
