HSG Asparagus strawberry Salad


Cook with the seasons: Grilled asparagus strawberry salad

  • Low in calories, asparagus is loaded with vitamins (B6, C and K), nutrients (folic acid and iron) and fiber.
  • Asparagus flourishes in Minnesota due to the cold wintertime temperature, which gives the plant a rest period to fully grow and mature.
  • Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C, fiber and potassium.

Spring is the natural season for asparagus and strawberries. This recipe benefits from giving the asparagus a short time on a grill to bring out its roasted flavors. This simple, fresh salad is a good source of iron and vitamin C and is a healthy gluten free side dish to pair with grilled meat, fish or plant-based proteins.

Don’t have a grill? You can roast the asparagus at 400 F for about 15 minutes.
