Large beautiful displays of fresh juicy green local asparagus are a sight to which I've become happily accustomed, but my latest trip to the local market left me with a heavy heart as I realized that this wonderful season must soon be coming to an end. Racing off with two bunches — not quite the last I hope? — I set off to make at least one more asparagus creation while I have time.
Always pairing best with simple flavours, I steamed a bunch of asparagus with fresh baby potatoes and tossed the vegetables with a simple but lively balsamic and Dijon mustard dressing. Served right away to enjoy the warmth and tenderness of the potatoes and asparagus, this was an elegant salad that I think you will find inviting at any time of year, even if the produce isn't local.
