Asparagus with Greek Salad Medley is a lovely way to add asparagus to the fresh clean flavours of a Greek salad. This salad is healthy, easy and appetising. Tender asparagus coupled with a gorgeous dressing of extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, a little red wine vinegar along with garlic and oregano. Couple that with super ripe tomatoes, crispy little cucumbers, super salty kalamata olives, red onion and loads of crumbled greek feta sprinkled with fresh black pepper. Serve chilled, with a glass of white wine for a delicious lunch.

Ingredients

Tomatoes

We are so lucky to have on our doorstep Noosa Red tomatoes that are grown organically. They are a small red tomato with loads of flavour that reminds you exactly what a tomato should taste like. Try to get tomatoes that have decent flavour as this really brings this salad alive.
