Asparagus and Red Capsicum Salad
2 Red Capsicums
1/3 cup Olive Oil ( we used a lot less)
1 clove garlic (roast in oven with capsicum)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (use fresh)
2 tablespoon fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons dry roasted pine nuts
Handful small black olives
Roast Capsicum under the grill (drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper) until blackened, cover until cool enough to handle then remove the skin. Chop all ingredients (I used the thermomix) and combine.
Cut off woody ends of the asparagus, line a baking tray with al foil. Drizzle over olive oil, salt and pepper and bake in oven for approx 5 mins. (toss once during this time.
Place some fresh spinach on a plate, layer the asparagus and spoon over the dressing. Serve with a slice of fresh lemon
